Juventus Avoid Legal Battle with Amicable Settlement

Juventus and Massimiliano Allegri may not have to go to court after all. According to the club’s official statement, the parties have ‘mutually agreedto terminate the manager’s contract at the Allianz Stadium.

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

Despite recent talks suggesting Juventus and Allegri would settle their differences in the courtrooms, they’ll seemingly avoid that scenario. The record-time Serie A champions sacked the former Milan coach less than 48 hours after he ended the club’s three-year title drought in May.

Dusan Vlahovic’s winner inspired Juventus to Coppa Italia glory at the expense of Atalanta, leading everyone to believe Allegri could earn a lifeline in Turin. But his touchline outburst toward the end of the Stadio Olimpico final proved the final straw to break the camel’s back.

Juventus deemed Allegri’s behavior unacceptable and unexpectedly showed him the door a year before the expiry of his contract. The club’s decision didn’t go well with the 56-year-old. But by the looks of things, the bust-up will not escalate.

Allegri is now free to choose his next destination. Meanwhile, Juventus can now focus on completing Thiago Motta’s impending arrival. It’s now a matter of time before the ex-Inter midfielder takes over the reins.
