Massimiliano Allegri led Juventus to an early elimination from the UEFA Champions League this season after losing 4-3 to Benfica on Tuesday evening. Despite the situation getting worse for the Bianconeri, reports from Italy suggest that the leaders at the club want to keep faith in the Italian manager.
According to Fabrizio Romano, relieving Allegri of his managerial duties doesn’t appear to be an option for the Juventus management.
The Italian journalist reports that the Livorno-born, as things stand, will not leave Juve at the end of the season and will not be sacked despite the defeat to Benfica.
Plagued by injuries in various departments, the Bianconeri has had a woeful season thus far, having amassed just 19 points from 11 matches in Serie A.
With the Champions League now gone, the best possibility in Europe will be a Europa League qualification via a third-placed finish. Juve President Andrea Agnelli has confirmed that he will not get rid of Allegri, who has a contract with the Old Lady until June 2025.
