Max Allegri Facing the Axe Amid Poor Juventus Form

There is growing tension in the Juventus dressing room following their back-to-back defeats ‘to nil’ – first against Milan and then Maccabi Haifa last UEFA Champions League matchday. The Bianconeri risk falling to Europa League or worse, whereas they sit 8th in the Serie A table, having played nine league matches.

Coach Massimiliano Allegri is in the crosshairs of being sacked, with the Juventus squad reportedly accusing the tactician of not communicating sufficiently, according to Giovanni Capuano of Radio 24. There is also talk of the 55-year-old practicing outdated training session and for not having defined a clear game plan.

Despite chief Andrea Agnelli siding by the experienced coach, support for him is dwindling in the Juventus locker room.

Results have arrived far and few for the Bianconeri who have won just four out of 13 matches across Serie A and UCL. There is growing speculation of Allegri being sacking before the January transfer window, with French outlet indicating a host of contenders to take his place, including Julen Lopetegui, Zinedine Zidane and Didier Deschamps.

Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero has also been linked with a role in the new front office.
