Juventus have confirmed the sacking of manager Massimiliano Allegri following a disagreement with the board.

Serie A giants Juventus have parted ways with manager Massimiliano Allegri, citing incompatible behaviour from the 56-year-old as the reason for the termination. 

The termination marks the end of his second stint at the club. He first managed Juventus from 2014–2019, when he won five consecutive Scudetto titles and four Coppa Italias. 

His just-concluded stint began in 2021, and although Juventus did not manage to win the league title, they beat Atalanta a few days ago to win the Coppa Italia.

Juventus statement 

The club released the following statement across all their official channels:

“Juventus announces that it has relieved Massimiliano Allegri of his role as coach of the men's first team.”

“The dismissal follows certain behaviours during and after the Italian Cup final which the club deemed incompatible with the values ​​of Juventus and with the behaviour that those who represent it must adopt.

“A period of collaboration ends, which began in 2014, restarted in 2021 and ended after the last 3 seasons together with the Italian Cup Final. The company wishes Massimiliano Allegri good luck in his future projects.”

Why Allegri was fired 

The writing on the wall was clear, Allegri was set to leave the Old Lady at the end of the season, with Thiago Motta set to be at the helm next season. 

However, the Juventus brass decided to fire him two games left in the season, despite his recent success in the cup due to his flagrant behaviour following the match.

Allegri had confrontations with the referee, members of the club's management, and even a journalist.
