Juventus Expected to Be Pragmatic About Coaching Choice

The reports about Juventus keeping Massimiliano Allegri past this season have gone back and forth. The team has yet to decide what to do with the gaffer. The parties would eventually need to agree to a new contract, TuttoSport informed.

The ongoing skid has fueled the criticism against him. The Bianconeri always indicated a top-four finish as their main goal. The recent result won’t lead to drastic changes in the coming weeks. The squad is fully behind the gaffer.

On the other hand, how Juventus conclude the season could determine whether Allegri will stay on the bench. A strong finish, perhaps defending the second place, would help the boss’ case.

Conversely, if the Bianconeri limped to the finish line, the possibility of a coaching change would gain steam. Thiago Motta is the potential replacement the front office is the most intrigued by.

Our Take on Juventus and Allegri

The Old Lady is in a peculiar spot as they’ll reach their goal, barring a collapse of epic proportions, yet their season might still be disappointing. They’ll have to make the call factoring in their transfer market strategy too. If they want to win with the Tuscan boss, they’ll have to give him two or three proven champions, as he’s not going to lift the team through his tactics. Instead, if they want to go with a younger and cheaper squad, a mad scientist like Motta would be a better fit.
