Allegri set to replace Pirlo at Juventus after 2 years absence
Massimiliano Allegri is set to replace Andrea Pirlo as manager of Juventus, the 53-year-old has also been attracting interest from Inter, but he has decided to return to Turin for a second spell in charge.
It was gathered that Allegri has signed a contract through 2025 to seal a return to Turin, with the 53-year-old having departed the club in 2019 to make way for Maurizio Sarri.
Discussions between Juve chairman Andrea Agnelli and Allegri have reached a positive conclusion, with Pirlo set to leave his position as head coach following a disappointing 2020-21 campaign.
The Series A giant finished fourth in the table, only securing Champions League qualification in their final game, while they were surprisingly knocked out of Europe’s premier club competition by Porto at the last-16 stage.
As a matter of fact, Pirlo did manage to guide Juve to success in both the Supercoppa Italiana and Coppa Italia, but that was not enough to keep him in the job.
Instead, the Juve hierarchy, led by chairman Agnelli, have decided to bring back former coach Allegri after a two-year absence.
