Former Juventus director Luciano Moggi believes the best managerial decision the club can make is to keep Max Allegri as their manager beyond this season.
Allegri has struggled since he returned to the club last season and Juve won zero trophies over the previous two terms.
There have been apparent calls for him to be replaced with a better manager and the club is likely to make that decision when the campaign ends.
The gaffer still has some support around the club and its owners are believed to have been impressed with how he has led the side in a turbulent time like this.
Moggi also seems to believe the club could have been in a more difficult situation if he wasn’t the gaffer.
He said via Tuttojuve:
“Coach? In my opinion, it will remain Allegri. Maybe you didn’t understand. Penalty? Until the end? Until the beginning! Had what happened to Juventus happened in other squares, a mess would have broken out”.
Juve FC Says
Allegri did well in managing the group through several off-field crises, but it does not mean the team is in good shape.
Most of our big-money signings have failed to shine under him and we need a change as soon as possible.
IMO allegri will be coach next year. I think honestly that juve foresaw this legal situation coming and that is the reason they sacked pirlo and brought him back. He knew that they would eventually be in the mess they are now. His objective was so what ever he could to help the team qualify for the champions league after the deduction. It’s never been about winning. It’s about keeping the cash flowing. It would explain the ridiculous contract he was given. His o jextice this season was to get top 6 or win the Europa league from the start – even with the intention of crashing out of the champions league. But this could just be my absolute frustration with watching juve play talking – it is an absolute chore to watch a juve game from beginning to end.
Common Moggi, don’t let us start losing faith in you
Still living in the 70’s tactics.
Very surprising comments from Moggi. He is becoming senile if he thinks Allegri is the answer going forward. The club is clueless for even thinking about keeping him. The problem is that there are no football people there to make the right football decisions.
If a rookie had come in to replace Allegri mid season I also think we would have been looking into a far worse mess than this. Going forward though, developing youth, bringing in Guintoli, new beginnings, utilizing the talent of Chiesa, Max gotta go. All respect to Moggi he knows calcio, here I believe he is wrong.
We will qualify for EL practically which is why the board is going to keep him. Unless that happen they might terminate him.
