Allegri dictating transfer plans from afar and a new addition for Juventus coaching staff

June 7, 2022 - 4:00 pm

Ahead of the summer transfer target, club directors often take central stage, while coaches fade in the background.

But despite being on holiday, Max Allegri remains in constant contact with the management of Juventus regarding all transfers.

According to la Gazzetta dello Sport via ilBianconero, the manager is currently spending the first part of his vacation between family and friends in his native town of Livorno.

Nevertheless, the tactician wants to have a solid squad at his disposal when the next campaign kickstarts as he wants to avoid another disastrous beginning which cost his side dearly last term.

On another note, it appears that the coaching staff will also witness some changes in personnel.

According to Calciomercato, Allegri has personally contacted his former Cagliari player Paolo Bianco, asking him to join his staff at Juventus. The latter naturally gave his consent.

The retired defender shared a strong rapport with the manager during their time together in Sardinia. He then spent the final years of his playing career at Sassuolo.

After hanging his boots in 2015, he served as the Neroverdi’s U-19 coach before becoming a collaborator for first team manager Roberto De Zerbi and then accompanying the latter towards Shakhtar Donetsk in 2021

In addition to Bianco, the source believes that other new faces could join Allegri’s coaching staff, but Simone Padoin will maintain his position as a part of the technical staff.

    Don’t you think it is better that the coach has substantial input as to who the team acquires in the transfer market? Even if it is “this dinosaur”? Afterall you want the team to have players that want to play for him and that fit his style. I mean lets put all the anti-Allegri attacks aside here. We all know you do not like him. Posting on is not going to change anything. They are not going to fire him and they should never have fired him. He had not done anything wrong. They were winning. When you lose, then you fire. That is normal. Not what Juve did. But Juve’s execs are not all that great to begin with. Marotta was the true archetect. That is the one they should have kept at all costs. I think the real problem is Agnielli has become gready and dillusional. He over thought to many things. It is time to get back to basics. And enough with the stupid super league. It has no place. I do agree that Pirlo should have been left to coach this season. He had earned it. But like said it has nothing to do with the coaches. I do not know why people hate Allegri. They called him. The presidents are to blame for the mess.
