Max Allegri’s mentor Giovanni Galeone has claimed that the Coach’s time at Juventus is ‘over’, regardless of whether he wins the Champions League.
Allegri’s future has come back under the spotlight after Juve’s 2-0 defeat to Atleti, and Galeone expects his former Pescara and Udinese protege to leave the Bianconeri in the near future.
“I already told him a few years ago to go to the Premier League,” the 78-year-old told Radio Kiss Kiss.
“I don’t think he can go anywhere else in Italy. Beyond how his adventure goes in the Champions League, I think his adventure at Juve is over.
“Last year he could’ve gone to Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United or Real Madrid, but he refused because he wanted to win the Champions League with Juventus.”
Galeone then took aim at Arrigo Sacchi, who is a known critic of the ex-Milan boss.
“Max must believe in the comeback. If he pulls it off he’ll make those who always criticise him think again,” he added.
“Sacchi always talks about this damn [musical] score, but if I have a score of Rachmaninoff and the pianist in a piano bar plays it then it's one thing. If Pollini plays it, it’s something else.
“You can’t criticise a Coach who has won 10 trophies with Juventus.”
