Seria A: Allegri speaks on leaving Juventus after this season


Juventus manager, Massimiliano Allegri, on Saturday dismissed talk he was set to quit the Serie A champions.

Allegri also hit back at the criticisms he received, following his side’s Champions League quarter-final exit at the hands of Ajax.

“Sometimes I wonder if I hadn’t managed to bring home some trophies in these years, what would have happened?

“Maybe they would have impaled me and burnt me at the stake,” the Italian coach told a press conference.

Allegri, speaking ahead of his side’s Serie A trip to Roma on Sunday, said he was due to meet with club chairman, Andrea Agnelli, to discuss his plans for next season.

“I have already told the chairman that I would like to stay, but now we need to talk.

“I have had the new Juventus in mind for six months, but first I need to meet Agnelli to see if we agree.

“Rumours about my successors are part of the game.

“I am grateful to the chairman and he also said he wanted to continue with me.

“I told him before Ajax that I would stay. I owe him and club,” he added.
