Return of Allegri, departure of Agnelli: Juventus prepares a "revolution"

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus is preparing a great upheaval and should in particular return Massimiliano Allegri, on the bench in a role like Sir Alex Ferguson.

Juventus is heading “towards a revolution”. La Gazzetta dello Sport announces profound changes to come in the ranks of the Old Lady as the end of the season approaches very trying with the elimination in the round of 16 of the Champions League, the loss of the title in Serie A , the fear of non-qualification in C1 and the failure of the European Super League. To remedy the crisis, the Italian sports newspaper announces in one that Juve will “change everything”.

The big maneuvers even started Thursday with the visit of John Elkann, the chairman of the board of directors of Exor, the holding company of the Agnelli family which owns the club. He went to the club’s training center, Continassa, to watch training before having lunch with his cousin Andrea Agnelli, club president. Fabio Paratici, sporting director, and Pavel Nedved, vice-president, also attended this informal meeting which would have drawn the contours of the face of Juventus next season.

Paratici, Agnelli and Pirlo towards the exit

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, one of the first choices will be to bring Massimiliano Allegri back to the Bianconeri bench. The technician who twice led Juventus to the Champions League final (2015 and 2017) should take over from Andrea Pirlo. According to the newspaper, he should be given a managerial role to Sir Alex Ferguson, legendary Manchester United coach.

This should not be the only change in the sports sector as Paratici should be removed from his post. Cristiano Giuntoli, who currently occupies this position in Naples, is strongly expected to succeed him. The future of Nedved would also be in the balance, just like that of President Agnelli, strongly weakened after the fiasco of the European Super League that he carried at arm’s length, by getting angry in particular with his (former) friend Aleksander Ceferin , president of UEFA. Alessandro Nasi, vice-president of Exor, could succeed him.
