Allegri set to leave Juventus this summer

Allegri leaves Juventus in amicable terms; list of potential replacements revealed

May 17, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
The Italian boss failed to win the UEFA Champions League with the bianconeri, but that was not the main reason for his departure.

According to a press release by Juventus, five-time Serie A champion Massimiliano Allegri will leave the bianconeri side by the end of the season. The Italian boss decided to part ways with the club since his idea towards the 2019-20 campaign did not match the thoughts of his employers.

Allegri decided that it was time to leave the club with one year left in his contract, even if the board backed him to stay despite his disappointing performance in the 2018-19 UEFA Champions League. The Italian tactician had already tried to leave the club by the end of last season, but Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival gave him one more reason to give it another go. Now, with the club pushing for a squad overhaul, Allegri has decided to step aside.

The team's press release on their website reveals that Allegri will face the media this Saturday.

With Allegri's departure, fans and experts hint a new era coming at the bianconeri club. But who will be there to lead it? Reports by the Italian media have suggested that Simone Inzaghi, Sinisa Mihajlovic and France's coach Didier Deschamps could be the frontrunners to take over as boss. The team's main options, Zinedine Zidane and Pep Guardiola, are no longer available.

Furthermore, there are two coaches that have been linked with the gig, but both of them seem to be doubtful. The first one is Mauricio Pochettino, who's buyout clause away from Tottenham would make the move too expensive. The other coach named as Allegri's possible replacement is Antonio Conte, but his well documented differences with president Andrea Agnelli (which led to his departure in 2014) make his comeback almost impossible.

Allegri will bid farewell to Juventus' fans on Sunday, when he coaches his last home game with the bianconeri against Atalanta.
