Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri will leave the Serie A champions at the end of the season.
Allegri, 51, has guided the Old Lady to a league title in each of his five seasons at the helm of the club since taking over in 2014 following the departure of Antonio Conte.
The announcement of the Italian’s end of season exit comes at a time when Juventus still have two league games left to play, with a home tie on Sunday against Atalanta coming first while the very last will be at Sampdoria on 26 May.
“I enjoy reading and hearing everything,” Allegri said, expressing his amusement about reports that suggested he would be leaving the Serie A champions.
“Next week I will meet with the president. We will be speaking in general terms, as we do every year. Before Ajax I told him I would stay.”
According to BBC Sport, “Allegri and club president Andrea Agnelli are set to speak at a news conference on Saturday.”
