Shock Report: Juve Could Sack Allegri Before Atletico Clash

Shock reports from Italy indicate that Juventus could sack manager Massimiliano Allegri before their upcoming UEFA Champions League tie against Atletico Madrid due to an "irreplaceable rift between Allegri and Juve's management".

Allegri, who has been at the helm of the Bianconeri since July 2014, winning four consecutive doubles in that time, has reportedly fallen out of favour with the club's management.

The former AC Milan boss was widely criticised in the aftermath of Juve's 2-0 loss to Atletico in the first leg of their UCL round of 16 tie two weeks ago, which seemingly led the 51-year-old closing his social media accounts, and many have since touted him for a departure from the club at the end of the season.

However, Italian publication Libero has now claimed the Italian manager could exit the club before Juventus' return fixture against the Rojiblancos due to "an irreplaceable rift between Allegri and the Juventus management".

The Turin club hierarchy's reported anger seemingly stems from the fact that Allegri is said to have met with Inter Milan CEO Beppe Marotta – who was CEO of Juventus before terminating his contract in October 2018 – further fuelling speculation he could replace Luciano Spalletti at the Nerazzurri.

Juventus president Andrea Agnelli is said to be incensed as a result, with reports indicating that the club has earmarked Antonio Conte, Zinedine Zidane and Pep Guardiola as possible replacements for their current manager.

Allegri broke his silence on the matter during a press conference ahead of his side's clash with Udinese on Friday night.

"I had dinner with President Agnelli last night and we are in agreement that we will not talk about a contract now," he said, as per GianlucaDiMarzio.com

"Arguments between us or my resignation? Whatever the case, it will be treated."

After winning a fourth consecutive Serie A title with the Bianconeri in 2018, Allegri made history by becoming the first manager in Europe's top five leagues to secure four successive doubles.
