Juve lines up Allegri's replacement

Juventus lines up top-caliber coach as Allegri's replacement

April 24, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
Winning the Serie A title may not be enough to see Allegri holding on to his job, according to reports coming in from Italy.

Juventus' failure to reach the UEFA Champions League semi-finals during the year in which they signed Cristiano Ronaldo could still bring massive repercussions, including the possibility of Massimiliano Allegri getting the boot.

In a report by Il Giornale, the coach's future as the bianconeri's boss is left up in the air, mainly due to his lack of success in the UEFA Champions League. Allegri has not failed to win a single Serie A title since he took over as coach in 2014, but he has lost two UEFA CL finals against Barcelona (2015) and Real Madrid (2017), which have prompted discussion about his real chances of leading the Italian giants to European glory.

With that in mind, Juventus' execs have begun searching for a replacement, with none other than Pep Guardiola as their main option in case they decided to sack Allegri. Il Giornale details that Guardiola is the frontrunner for the job alongside Antonio Conte, but his track record and Cristiano Ronaldo's approval give him an edge over the former bianconeri boss.

Guardiola is not living his best time as Manchester City's coach, following a UEFA Champions League exit that has sparked a lot of criticism against him in England. If he is thumped out of the Premier League's title race today, Guardiola could give serious thought to an offer from Juve, according to the newspaper.

Juve's overhaul to reach European glory seems to be moving on the right direction, with Cristiano Ronaldo giving insight on which players should join the club next year. Will that overhaul include a new coach? We will have to wait and see.
