Despite the underperformance and complaints from fans, Massimiliano Allegri is firmly at the helm of Juventus and his future is in no doubt. His long and rich contract guarantees his consistency for a few more seasons. The coach himself has hinted in recent presses that he has embarked on a multi-year project.
The Tuscan gaffer is on course to underperform Maurizio Sarri and Andrea Pirlo. The two previous managers got the ax after just one season. It is unlikely that this will happen again this summer. President Andrea Agnelli has full confidence in the current skipper, La Gazzetta dello Sport reports.
After losing to Inter and drawing against Bologna, Juventus and Allegri have to settle for the bare minimum of a place in the top four. The Coppa Italia is their last chance to not go without trophies for the first time in over a decade. They meet Fiorentina in the second leg of the semi-finals on Wednesday. They won the first game, one-to-zero.
After 33 rounds is the Bianconeri had gained 3 more points in 2020-2021 and were closer to the top position and 14 more in 2019-2020. On the other hand, Sarri paid the price for the strained relationships within the players, Pirlo for his lack of experience. The Juventus chairman has no doubts about Allegri on those fronts. While some missteps have raised eyebrows, the difficulties arising from a third consecutive managerial change probably outweigh the difficulties. In addition, the current boss is tied to the club for another three years, with a whopping salary of 9 million euros.
