The club have confirmed the news after releasing a statement, which read: “Juventus announces that it has relieved Massimiliano Allegri of his position as head coach of the men’s first team.

“The exoneration follows certain behaviours during and after the Coppa Italia final that the club deemed incompatible with the values of Juventus and the behaviour that those who represent it should have.

“It ends a period of collaboration, which began in 2014, restarted in 2021 and ended, after the previous three seasons together, with the Italian Cup final.

“The club wishes Massimiliano Allegri good luck in his future endeavours.”

Allegri’s actions during Wednesday’s Coppa Italia final over Atalanta were mentioned in the statement. Juventus prevailed 1-0 in the match, but Allegri’s outburst during stoppage time cost him a fine of $5400 (€5000/££4200) and a two-match suspension.

The now-former Juventus boss ripped off his jacket and was sent off by the referee, where he then sarcastically applauded the decision.

Prior to the 2023–24 season ending, Juventus has two more Serie A games left. On Monday, May 20, the Old Lady will play Bologna, and in their final match, on May 26, Monza.

Juventus will name Paolo Montero, their U19 coach, as their interim coach for these matches, according to report.
