Juventus has found a possible successor to Massimiliano Allegri

The ground at Massimiliano Allegrim is falling more and more. Italy is unable to get Juventus out of the crisis, which worries the owner. The “Old Lady” offices have already identified the main candidate to replace the 55-year-old, Roberto De Zerbi, says Sport Mediaset.

Wednesday’s defeat of Juventus in the Champions League with Benfica enraged the supporters of the Turin team, demanding far-reaching changes in the club. These are to begin with, first of all, saying goodbye to Massimiliano Allegri, who seems to have lost control of the whole mess.

The 36-time Italian champion is struggling with many problems – not only the sports ones.

A historically poor start in European cups, just two victories in Serie A and a nervous dressing room raise a lot of doubts around the 55-year-old coach. His position is not particularly strong, which is confirmed by recent reports from Sport Mediaset.

According to them, the owner of the “Old Lady”, Andrea Agnelli, and the management are already looking for a possible replacement for the titled trainer, focusing his eyes on Roberto De Zerbi.

The 43-year-old has been unemployed since early July after he ended his cooperation with Shakhtar Donetsk, with whom he previously managed to win the Ukrainian Super Cup. For obvious reasons, the Italian’s adventure with “Miners” ended in just 30 meetings.

Before that, a specialist from Brescia sat on the bench of Sassuolo, Benevento, Palermo or Foggia. As you can see, De Zerbi’s CV does not arouse admiration, although he is praised for his modern approach to football, which could help the ossified giant from Turin.

The trainer had previously been linked to a job in Bologna. In this he was to succeed Siniš Mihajlovic, but as a sign of respect for the Serb, he abandoned further negotiations. In addition, the Italian also appeared on the radars of Brighton Hove & Albion, which recently said goodbye to Graham Potter.

Massimiliano Allegri began his second term at Juventus at the end of May 2021. In total, at the controls of the team from the former Stadio delle Alpi, he sat 331 times, noting during this time 222 wins, 56 draws and 53 defeats.

His premiere adventure in the team from Piedmont was crowned with a series of successes – five championships and four Italian cups.
