According to Sky Sport Italia, Juventus cannot afford to sack Max Allegri, but they could start by changing members of the fitness staff.
The Bianconeri have had a disastrous start to the season, winning only two of their seven games so far in all competition.
Last night’s 2-1 home defeat to Benfica in the Champions League was particularly damning, as they now sit bottom of their group, six points adrift of PSG and the Portuguese side.
Sacking Allegri would be a very expensive move indeed, as the coach has a four-year contract worth €9m per season.
Nonetheless, the club is desperate to take action and resolve some of these issues, so Sky Sport Italia claim the first action will be changing some members of the fitness staff who work with Allegri.
Injuries continue to pile up, including Paul Pogba, Manuel Locatelli, Adrien Rabiot, Wojciech Szczesny, Federico Chiesa and Kaio Jorge.
There are huge concerns over why Juve seem incapable of playing more than one half of football this season, either starting strong and petering out, or waking up in the second half once the result has been compromised.
That could be at least in part a fitness issue, although the fear is that it is more psychological.
