Massimiliano Allegri to leave Juventus after five years at club
Allegri joined the club after a spell with AC Milan
Massimiliano Allegri will leave Juventus at the end of the 2018/19 season after five years at the Serie A club. The former Cagliari and AC Milan manager has won the Serie A title in every season at the club.
The news was confirmed by Juventus on their official website on Friday morning, with the club stating that Allegri and club president Andrea Agnelli will meet the press on Saturday morning to explain the decision.
Allegri joined Juve in 2014, taking over Antonio Conte, and has led the club to five consecutive league titles, as well four Coppa Italia trophies and two Italian Supercoppa Italiana trophies.
He joined the club after a three-and-a-half seasons with AC Milan, which began with a league title - Milan's last - and ended with him being sacked with the club in 11th place in the Serie A.
He leaves Juventus after five consecutive league titles and two appearances in the Champions League final, in 2015 and 2017. On both occasions Juve were defeated by Spanish opposition, in Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively.
Juventus have yet to state who will replace Allegri. However, the speed with which they replaced Antonio Conte with Allegri would suggest that the club have a plan for the future.
