Juventus have confirmed the return of Massimiliano Allegri as head coach of the Turin club just few hours after announcing Pirlo’s exit.
Pirlo failed to land the club’s 10th successive Scudetto finishing fourth in the Serie A but despite winning the Coppa Italia and the Italian Supercup Juventus parted ways with the young manager.
Juve on Friday afternoon announced quickly the return of Massimiliano Allegri to come repair the damages after a poor Serie A season.
“Massimiliano Allegri is Juventus manager once more,” a club statement read.
“Now we are ready to begin again with Allegri, to build our future together with his enormous professionalism, his moral strength, with brilliant ideas of a coach capable of shuffling the cards, both on and off the pitch.
“With his smile, a sort of signature. With his way of understanding football and life with simplicity, with his desire to play things down and with the commitment to enjoy every beautiful moment that being at Juventus can give and will give.”
Allegri’s first stint with Juventus was between 2014-2019 and during that time he won the Serie A 5 times, the Coppa Italia 4 times and the Italian Supercup twice.
