Serie A Juventus And Allegri Reach Agreement To Part Ways

Juventus said on Monday that they had struck an agreement with coach Massimiliano Allegri, whom they fired two weeks ago, to end his contract by mutual consent.

The 56-year-old Italian was fired on May 17 after exploding with rage following the Italian Cup final victory against Atalanta two days prior.

The club announced on Monday that the two sides had reached an agreement on the conditions of their separation.

Juventus Football Club and Massimiliano Allegri can confirm that they have mutually agreed to terminate his contract at the end of the current season,” the Turin giants said.

“The club would like to thank Allegri for all the sporting achievements that he has spearheaded over the years and wishes him all the best in his future endeavours.”

Juve won their 15th Italian Cup on May 15, but Allegri went into a frenzy, being sent off in the last minutes after shouting at the officials and dismissively waving away Juventus sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli during the post-match celebrations.

The behaviour prompted an investigation by the Italian Football Federation’s disciplinary authority.

Juventus finished third in the Serie A table, 23 points behind champions Inter Milan.

Allegri helped Juventus win 12 titles in two seasons and had a contract until 2025.

The announcement opens the door for ex-Italy midfielder Thiago Motta to be named the new Juve manager after leading Bologna to fifth place and Champions League qualification.
