Although Juventus experienced a very disappointing season under Massimiliano Allegri, they have no plans to sack the Italian coach despite Pavel Nedved’s complaints.
Nedved was furious following the Bianconeri’s Coppa Italia final defeat to rivals Inter on Wednesday and he had a serious confrontation with the Italian coach after speaking to the squad.
The Juventus director was unhappy with Allegri’s substitutions and the general lack of visible progress this season. He later expressed this anger to Andrea Agnelli, unwilling to drop the complaint. Back in 2019, the former midfielder was one of those who pushed for the coach to be dismissed.
Despite Nedved’s frustrations, which are seemingly shared by a large part of the fanbase, Agnelli has no intention of dismissing Allegri this summer, with three reasons in particular standing out.
The first of these is that the Juventus chairman trusts Allegri and believes that he can turn the situation around in Turin following a tough return season. It’s clear that the team are in transition following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo and Agnelli feels that the former Milan coach is the right man to oversee this.
The second reason is the long contract Allegri holds with Juventus; his deal expires in 2025 and he earns €7m net per season plus add-ons, so it would be incredibly expensive for the Bianconeri to dismiss him early.
Finally, Agnelli understands the various difficulties encountered this season and he appreciates the fact that Champions League qualification was still secured. The late departure of Ronaldo and serious injury suffered by Federico Chiesa clearly had an impact on Allegri’s work this campaign, so the Juventus chairman still holds faith.
