Disgruntled Juventus owner John Elkann called Massimiliano Allegri on Tuesday and that the coach will not necessarily remain in charge of the team in the 2023/24 season.
The Bianconeri are determined to end a second consecutive season without a trophy, but Allegri confirmed last week that he has no plans to leave.
Juventus owner Elkann and director Francesco Calvo have also publicly confirmed their faith in the Livorno-born coach, but that does not mean Allegri will remain in charge next season.
According to Tuttosport and Il Corriere dello Sport, Elkann called on Allegri on Tuesday after the 4-1 defeat to Empoli. Elkann was reportedly unhappy with the ‘victim’ mentality displayed during Allegri’s post-match interviews.
Allegri has two more years left on his contract with the Old Lady, but that does not guarantee him the job for next season.
According to Il Corriere dello Sport, Juventus could negotiate a buy-out clause and part with the 55-year-old at the end of the current season.
Romeo Agresti of Goal.com confirms that the coach is under observation and imagining a Juventus with a different man in next season’s championship is not an impossible scenario.
Some players are unhappy with the coach’s management, which may also have an impact on Juventus’ decision.
