Former Juventus striker Alessandro Matri sees ‘too much distance’ between the club and Massimiliano Allegri and predicts the Italian tactician will leave the Allianz Stadium in June.

Allegri is under fire after Juventus’ 0-0 draw against Torino which means the Bianconeri have only two games from the last 11 in Serie A.

La Gazzetta dello Sport has already explained that the Bianconeri are considering replacing Allegri in the summer. Given that the team is not dangerous enough in the final third, club directors are considering a coach with a different playing style.

Matri, a former Juventus striker who played 94 games under Allegri for Milan, Cagliari and the Bianconeri, feels the coach’s time at the Allianz Stadium is over and that the 56-year-old will leave at the end of the season.

Allegri expected to leave Juventus

“There is too much distance between the club and Allegri, and it’s difficult to think they can continue together,” the ex-Italy international told DAZN, as quoted by

“When you talk about a project, you can’t get to this point and continue to stall for time.

Juventus director Cristiano Giuntoli has not guaranteed that Allegri would remain in charge beyond the summer despite a contract expiring in 2025.

What Giuntoli said about Allegri

“At the end of the season, there will be time to sit down and understand what the future of Juventus will be with clear objectives,” said Giuntoli.

“That is what we did last summer. The coach has a contract, he is doing a great job and at the end of the season we’ll sit down to talk with him.”
