Juventus rejected Allegri’s resignation

Massimiliano Allegri was reportedly willing to step down as Juventus’ coach, but club owners have rejected his request.

Resignation from the board of directors shocked the world of football on Monday and according to Gazzetta, Allegri wanted to follow Andrea Agnelli and Pavel Nedved out of the club.

The report (via Football Italia) claims both Allegri and sporting director Federico Cherubini wanted to step down, but club owner John Elkann rejected his request.

Allegri is expected to remain at Juventus at least until the end of the season, when the new president will decide the plans for 2023-24.

The Italian tactician’s €7m-a-year deal expires in June 2025.

After learning that the whole board of directors had resigned, the coach immediately contacted the players to provide updates about the situation.

Despite getting plenty of criticism early this season and facing Champions League elimination in the group stage, the Old Lady remains confident in the tactician’s work and his position won’t be discussed until the summer.
