Juventus affirm Massimiliano Allegri will stay at the club despite a struggling season

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri’s future has plunged into doubt after rumours emerged that he could be on the move this summer on the back of a turbulent season.

The Italian has come under pressure after four consecutive winless games, including last night’s draw against Bologna in Serie A.

Juve’s struggles have raised concerns over their top-four chances. Although they are third in the table, they cannot afford any further slip-ups, with Inter Milan, AC Milan and AS Roma close behind.

The Europa League remains the last resort for winning a trophy this season. However, Juve chief Francesco Calvo has insisted the outcome will not impact Allegri’s future.

“It’s pretty obvious that Massimiliano Allegri will stay — he will be our coach,” Calvo told DAZN (h/t Fabrizio Romano).

He’s signed a four-year deal and we’re not even at the half of that. Eleven trophies, also two Champions League finals speak for Allegri.”

The Bianconeri were held to a draw against Bologna, with Arakadiusz Milik cancelling out Riccardo Orsolini’s early penalty.

Juve also missed the chance to leapfrog Lazio to second place in the table, with the Biancocelesti losing to Inter earlier that day.

Rumours of a new manager replacing Allegri in the summer have been circulating in recent weeks, with Zinedine Zidane, Antonio Conte and Igor Tudor among the candidates.

Zidane is keen on a move to Turin, while the Bianconeri see Marseille’s Tudor as a feasible option.

Juventus will face Lecce and Atalanta in their upcoming Serie A games in their lead-up to the Europa League semi-final against Sevilla.
