Juventus will not be sacking Massimo Allegri any time soon. The club’s chief Francesco Calvo insists that the job of the Italian coach is safe. Rumors have surfaced in recent weeks that Juventus may want to part ways with the manager and that former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has already been approached for next season.
But Calvo ruled anything out at the moment. “The objectives for this season are second place and to reach the Europa League final, which we are not in yet,” Calvo told DAZN. “I think saying Allegri is confirmed in his place would be saying something entirely obvious. He returned on a four-year contract and is not even half-way through that project.”
The Juventus chief defended the coach and emphasized that Allegri has earned the trust of the club. “The 11 trophies in seven years at Juventus and two Champions League Finals speak for Allegri, he is absolutely not up for debate. The important thing for us is that we want to learn, grow and improve even in a difficult season, which goes for the directors, coach and players.”
