Italian giants Juventus sacked their head coach Massimiliano Allegri on Friday, May 17. The shocking move came after the legendary manager's angry outburst during the Italian Cup final against Atalanta at Rome's Stadio Olimpico on Thursday evening. 

The Bianconeri recorded a 1-0 win over Atalanta to lift the famous title but Allegri's antics on the sidelines overshadowed the game. The Italian veteran ripped off his jacket and kicked an advertisement board before showing his anger at the officials. He was shown a late red card for ranting at officials and fined 5,000 euros by the Serie A league judge.

"The exoneration follows certain behaviours during and after the Coppa Italia final that the club deemed incompatible with the values of Juventus and the behaviour that those who represent it should have," the official press release said. "It ends a period of collaboration, which began in 2014, restarted in 2021 and ended, after the previous three seasons together, with the Italian Cup final. The club wishes Massimiliano Allegri good luck in his future endeavours."

Meanwhile, the Italian giants were reportedly considering parting ways with Allegri after the conclusion of the Serie A season. The Old Lady claimed the Italian Cup but currently find themselves fourth in the league table with two games in hand. Juventus also lost their place in European competition after failing to match account regulations.

Allegri struggled for dominance since his arrival at Allianz Arena for his second stint in 2021. He boasts a legendary status at the club having led them to five consecutive Serie A titles from 2015 to 2019. Allegri won the Serie Coach of the Year award four times and was inducted into the Italian Football Hall of Fame in 2018.

Juventus did not name Allegri's replacement but are linked with the former Italian midfielder Thiago Motta who currently manages Bologna in Serie A.
