Amid the ongoing investigations, Juventus will likely continue to clean house at the management level at the end of the season. Sporting director Federico Cherubini might get the ax as well, even though he’s one of the few execs that don’t risk being sent to trial. He’s worked at the club in various roles for a decade, climbing through the ranks.
As per La Repubblica, Massimiliano Allegri has the best chance of staying put out of anybody currently at the helm, but it’ll hinge on results. Antonio Conte suspiciously visited Turin over the weekend. The new Bianconeri brass, led by president Gianluca Ferrero and corporate CEO Maurizio Scanavino, plot to return to a more traditional structure.
Therefore, Juventus will go back to having a chief of football and a sporting director. They have zeroed in on Giuseppe Marotta for the first role, and he’d pick his partner if he accepted. The other candidates are Sassuolo’s Giovanni Carnevali, Napoli’s Cristiano Giuntoli, and Atletico Madrid’s Andrea Berta.
For the other position, the Bianconeri could promote from within. Giovanni Manna, who handles the Next Gen squad, is well-regarded within the club. The main alternative are Lazio’s Igli Tare, who’s on an expiring contract, and Milan’s Frederic Massara, who’s a fine scout, and Gianluca Petrachi.
Our Take on Juventus Mulling Several Executives
Unlike the last time, Marotta didn’t rush to dismiss the buzz. There might be something to it, but a reunion would still be shocking. His work and cycle at Inter are far from over. The Bianconeri haven’t poached a top-level official from outside since the early days of the Andrea Agnelli era. If they did, it would be a harbinger of true change. The worthy candidates are plenty.
