Juventus and Massimiliano Allegri will part ways at the end of the season, as the Italian breaks his silence after the dismissal
The Bianconeri have officially announced on Friday that Allegri won’t be leading the team from the touchline next season, as he prepares for his last home game in charge when the Turin giants welcome Atalanta to the Allianz Stadium on Sunday.
The 51-year-old arrived in Turin five years ago from AC Milan, helping Juventus to claim five Serie A titles, as well as, four Coppa Italia trophies and two Supercoppa Italiana crowns.
What’s more, under Allegri’s guidance, the Old Lady have featured in two Champions League finals, losing both of them though.

With the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo last summer, Juve’s board has expected the Italian tactician to lead the team to their elusive first Champions League title in the 21st century.
However, the former Cagliari boss has failed to deliver the desired results in Europe, which has ultimately cost him his job.
Speaking of his imminent departure, Allegri has said that he has no idea who will be sitting on the bench next season and has also refused to reveal his next destination.
“The name of the next coach? That I don’t know, someone needs to be on the bench, but I don’t know who,” he said.
“In any case, they will choose a great coach because Juve is a great club. “They were five marvelous years, five years is a lot for me.
“Life is like this, things come and go. Where will I go? Home, now I can go to the beach a little bit.”
Pep Guardiola seems like an impossible goal, while the names of Mauricio Pochettino and Antonio Conte are still floating around as possible solutions for Juventus.
