Monza Manager in Pole Position to Replace Allegri

Raffaele Palladino is touted to be one of the main candidates to succeed Massimiliano Allegri should Juventus part ways with their long-time manager. The veteran won’t stay put unless he and the club agree to a new contract.

Per La Repubblica, the Bianconeri front office is already sold on the talent of the up-and-comer. They appreciate his ability to valorize youngsters and modern style in particular.

Palladino was already rumored to be on the Juventus radar last summer. They ultimately stuck with Allegri as they had already undergone big changes in other areas. The young skipper signed an extension till June 2024 late in the game. He makes €1M. There’s a gulf between the wages of the two bosses.

The tactician spent some time in Turin when he was a prospect and then had a regular role in the first team for two seasons between 2006 and 2007. He totaled 51 appearances and 10 goals. After retiring, he quickly worked his way up the ladder with the Biancorossi. He started helming their U-15 team in 2020, rapidly earning two promotions.

Our Take on Juventus and Palladino

It’s a bit odd that the rumors about Allegri are swirling around already. Still, considering his previous familiarity with the club, agile contractual situation, wages, qualities, and the fact that he’s not a mad genius like other options, the Monza coach is probably the most believable replacement.
