Juventus Appoint Paolo Montero as Caretaker Until Season End

Juventus officially appointed Paolo Montero as caretaker until the end of the season. He will lead Juve’s senior team against Bologna and Monza, after the dismissal of Massimilano Allegri following his post-Coppa Italia outburst.

Montero has been in charge of the Juventus Under 19 (Primavera) team, whose championship ended yesterday. He showed up this morning at the Continassa training center to lead his first training session. He was joined by Francesco Magnanelli and Simone Padoin, the only ones from the previous staff who were not only relieved of their duties.

Juventus resorted to a in-house solution to walk a path of continuity as they wrap up their season. They put in charge a man who has meant a great to the black-and-white fans as player.

Uruguayan-born Montero is a former Juventus defender. He wore the Bianconeri jersey between 1996 and 2005, collecting 186 appearances. He won four Scudetti (plus a fifth in 2004/05 that was eventually revoked following the Calciopoli scandal), three Italian Super Cups, an Intercontinental Cup and a UEFA Cup in 1996, as well as an Intertoto Cup in 1999.

He holds the record for the most red cards received in Serie A as he was shown his marching orders 16 times in his Italian career.
