Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri

Juventus Part Ways with Massimiliano Allegri and Secure Top Replacement

Juventus Sacked Allegri Following Coppa Italia Outburst

Massimiliano Allegri’s Juventus tenure is set to come to an end. The Italian manager is set to leave at the end of the season. This is a result of Allegri’s outburst during the Coppa Italia final between Juventus and Atalanta.

With Juve 1-0 and the game having a very short amount of time remaining, Allegri was livid at referees and fourth officials due to a decision. His rampage, however, continued after the game and he refused compliments from Cristiano Giuntoli and Maurizio Scanavino. Allegri was even spotted making gestures to the duo.

As a result of his outburst, Juventus reportedly considered sacking Allegri right away, as he has been asked to leave at the end of the season. Fabrizio Romano reported on the matter (via Fabrizio Romano on X):

“Juventus and Massimiliano Allegri will part ways as he won’t be the manager next season, as planned since February. The only detail to clarify is whether Juve decide to sack Allegri now or in 10 days. Juventus priority candidate as new head coach remains Thiago Motta.”

Juventus identify Thiago Motta as Allegri’s replacement: reports

According to Football Italia, Juventus have identified Bologna boss Thiago Motta as Massimiliano Allegri’s replacement. The former Italy international will be handed a contract of two years, with the option of a further year. Motta will reportedly earn 3.5 million per season with Juve.

Motta, since his turn to coaching, has done a remarkable job. He has been in charge of Bologna since 2022. Motta’s side are currently third in Serie A with 67 points from 36 matches.
