Massimiliano Allegri is still the coach of Juventus despite the disastrous results of the team. “La Repubblica” reveals why the coach has not yet lost his job. There is one main reason.
This is not a successful time for Juventus. Torino had a bad start to the new season. In the first division, they occupy only eighth place in the table, and in the Champions League they lose their first two matches (against Paris Saint-Germain and Benfica). This contributes to the terrible atmosphere surrounding the club and the team led by Massimiliano Allegri.
After Benfica’s defeat on Wednesday in the Champions League, the hashtag #AllegriOut, which calls for the dismissal of the “old lady” guardian, has gained immense popularity on social media. Fans are demanding the appointment of a new coach.
La Repubblica explains why the authorities are not yet willing to fire the coach. There is one main reason – economic. The dismissal of Allegri would mean huge compensation payments to him.
The Italian earns 7 million euros annually under a contract valid until 2025. If Allegri is fired, a major transfer will have to be made to his account.
However, journalists point out that if the match and team results in the domestic and international backyard have not changed by November, the club will fire an experienced coach anyway.
