Max Allegri’s Managerial Downfall

The Italian boss, Max Allegri, has enjoyed a trophy-laden with the Bianconneri. However, his latest comeback to manage the club has been a rough go as they seem to struggle in the big stages.

Back-to-back Champions League exits to Villareal, Porto, Real Madrid and Lyon, as well as their recent slump in form, has been the highlight of his Juventus side in recent years.

As Max Allegri continues to come under scrutiny in recent weeks due to his abysmal performances, the Italian boss has a crucial tactical decision to make that could hold the key to saving his job despite reassurances from the club’s president.

The form of big-money summer signing Bremer and other meager signings have been a factor in their recent slump in form, though the manager must take some of the blame has struggled to find a formation that will get the best out of his star-studded attack, as well as the other high-profile members of his squad.

Paul Pogba is yet to feature for his side due to injuries and off-the-field issues, while other big names Filip Kostic and Angel Di Maria who was scooped from PSG have had their season hampered by injuries.

Max Allegri Isn’t Under Pressure

Dusan Vlahovic’s form has bailed out the Biaconneri on several occasions with Di Maria and Aleksandr Milik also pivotal in grinding out results, but Allegri’s inability to build out a system to suit his team remains his main Achilles heel.

He will have to do so quickly, with a run of just three wins in ten games across all competitions – including two consecutive losses to AC Milan and Champions League minnows Maccabi Haifa.

They currently sit eighth in the Serie A, ten points behind leaders Napoli, and have recruited the best talents in the league with a mix of experience stars, a title challenge is expected out of this team.

Multiple outlets have it that the Italian manager might be subject to sack following his most recent low in a loss to Maccabi Haifa – a victory which was the Israeli team’s first victory in the competition in 20 years. The club president, however, took to the media to reassure Max Allegri of his stance despite the club’s turmoil.

“Massimiliano Allegri is our head coach and he will stay, I feel ashamed and angry… so in this kind of situation you can’t blame one single person, it’s the whole group”-Juventus Manager Andrea Agnelli confirms.”

Allegri had earlier dismissed the talks of his resignation and revealed his readiness to tackle and steer his team out of their recent decline:

“I’m not gonna step down because it’s a challenge now. When it gets harder, it’s even more beautiful”.
