Allegri left Juventus without regrets

    Former Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri has admitted he left the club in the summer without regrets

    The 52-year-old tactician has stepped down after winning five successive Serie A titles with the Bianconeri, with Maurizio Sarri taking his place on the bench.

    Aside from leading the Old Lady to domestic glory in each year of charge, Allegri has guided his former side to the Champions League final in 2016/17, losing 4-1 to Real Madrid in Cardiff.

    However, back-to-back quarter-finals eliminations made the Juventus hierarchy doubt in his capability of wrapping up the most prestigious club trophy in Europe.

    The ex-Milan manager has insisted he had no second thoughts about leaving the Allianz Stadium this summer, hinting at Inter Milan to challenge Juventus for the league title this term.

    “Do I have second thoughts over leaving Juventus? None at all, after five years, was right to take a break,” he told the reporters, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

    “Agnelli had probably figured this out before me. He has European aspirations.”

    When asked about his former collaborator, Beppe Marotta, Allegri said: “I won four Scudetti with him in four years, I won one without him.

    “He has done well at Inter, pursuing Conte was a significant decision. Inter can battle for the Scudetto this year.”
