Report: Juventus locker room divided between Allegri loyalists and opposition

October 12, 2022 - 2:00 pm

During his first spell in Turin, Max Allegri was always in control of the locker. Apart from some small incidents, the tactician was mostly beloved by his troops.

However, his second stint has been nothing short but disastrous. Yesterday’s defeat against Maccabi Haifa saw the club hitting a new low.

According to La Repubblica via Calciomercato, there has been a growing rift in the Juventus locker room, between players who remain loyal to the Italian tactician and others who want him gone as soon as possible.

Despite the love-hate relationship between the two men, Leonardo Bonucci still supports the under-fire manager, perhaps as a sense of duty.

Allegri also has the support of other veteran players, the likes of Danilo, Juan Cuadrado, Wojciech Szczesny and his pupil Mattia De Sciglio.

Then there’s a group of players who aren’t totally against the manager, but are growing tired of the current situation. This includes Manuel Locatelli, Weston McKennie and Adrien Rabiot.

On the other hand, the report claims that the new players are the ones leading the revolt.

For instance, Angel Di Maria and Leonardo Paredes have a cold rapport with the tactician, while Gleison Bremer and Filip Kostic have reportedly voiced their concerns over Allegri’s baffling tactics.

    It seems obvious to everyone but Agnelli. I can’t believe they sacked Pirlo for this. I have always been on the side of patience but when the team is divided it’s not going to get any better. Also Allegri’s behavior is baffling. What he has done to ruin Locatelli’s progression is stupid. Not only are his tactics to blame but he calls him a second rate midfielder in the media. I’m surprised he’s in the middle of the park with Allegri. And Paredes? Allegri is the only reason he is on this team instead of a clearly better and younger Rovella (who I preferred), and even he has no rapport with Allegri. Clearly Allegri is a terrible manager in this modern age of the game.
