Support for Allegri Dwindling in Juventus Locker Room

Juventus president Andrea Agnelli publicly confirmed Massimiliano Allegri following yet another collapse versus Maccabi Haifa. That ensures he will stay put if they lost the derby with Torino. In the meantime, the squad will go on retreat at the Continassa training center.

As per TuttoSport, while the chairman stated that they usually assess and eventually change the coach at the end of the season, the lengthy November break offers a unique opportunity to usher in a new boss. That’s on the table if the Bianconeri don’t improve dramatically in the remaining fixtures. However, the potential new gaffer is unlikely to be a high-profile one for financial reasons, EuroSport informs.

According to La Repubblica, Allegri has very few supporters inside the Juventus locker room. The gaffer mended fences with Leonardo Bonucci after previous disagreements led to his departure in the past. Wojciech Szczesny, Danilo, Juan Cuadrado, Arkadiusz Milik, Adrien Rabiot, Daniele Rugani and Mattia De Sciglio are among his backers. Paul Pogba too, but has never played so far.

In the last two summers, Cristiano Ronaldo, Matthijs De Ligt, Denis Zakaria, and Arthur, which were the most bitter towards the manager, all left. There isn’t a proper revolt, but Manuel Locatelli and Weston McKennie surely aren’t on the coach’s side. The relationship with Angel Di Maria soured quickly. The role of Leandro Paredes hasn’t been as pivotal as he imagined when he pushed to join. The rift with Federico Chiesa is old. Others, such as Filip Kostic, Dusan Vlahovic, and Gleison Bremer are perplexed by the lack of intensity in practice and the tactical confusion. Vice-president Pavel Nedved leads the opposition to Allegri within the Juventus brass.
