Allegri and Inzaghi to Keep Jobs but Face More Pressure

Despite their sides’ poor showings to start the season, Massimiliano Allegri and Simone Inzaghi will be at the helm of Juventus and Inter after the break. There will be no immediate changes, but the two clubs are starting to entertain such possibility. The respective managements will fully take stock in mid-November, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.

The Bianconeri CEO Maurizio Arrivabene strongly defended the coach Sunday, calling the potential firing “crazy.” But not everybody within the front office thinks that way. The parties are growing distant. An off-the-record interview by the gaffer made things worst. The players did not have a reaction to help him out, and that’s raising concerns. For instance, Angel Di Maria was unhappy with the handling of his return from injury. His display versus Monza was lackluster even before the red card.

According to the publication, the confidence by the two Italian powerhouses in Allegri and Inzaghi is not unlimited. While their dismissals aren’t imminent and won’t hinge on the results of the next few matches, they will need to turn things around in October.

Giuseppe Marotta was quick to show support for his coach, but it’s now up to him to identify the remedy for their woes. Their recent performances have been riddled with costly individual mistakes.

Our Take on Allegri and Inzaghi

On top of the paltry product on the pitch, the Juventus boss seems to be losing the locker room. They risk throwing away the season by delaying the call. The economic bloodshed can’t be a justification. The issues of the Nerazzurri are more mysterious, but their execs are generally very patient. The gaffer will have more opportunities, also for the lack of a viable replacement.
