Juventus Vice-President Pavel Nedved insists they have not picked Max Allegri’s replacement, but “we have some pretty clear ideas.”
The Bianconeri play their final home game of the season against Atalanta at 19.30 UK time (18.30 GMT).
“I was not at Max’s Press conference, but it’s because I had another work commitment that couldn’t be moved, so I was very sad to miss that,” Nedved told Sky Sport Italia.
“The club had to make a decision, we made it, I feel this era came to a natural end, without a specific reason. It was a very important cycle and I don’t think it will ever be repeated again.
“Max won 11 trophies, almost everything we asked of him, so he deserves only praise and a great farewell. The same goes for Andrea Barzagli, as it is their celebration tonight.
“There was no one reason, this experience just came to a natural end. Each of us had to say what we felt inside and that’s where we ended up.
“Juve need to win trophies, Max did that, so he did a great job.”
Nedved was asked about the favourites for the Juve job, including Maurizio Sarri and Simone Inzaghi.
“There will be some evaluations, we are in no rush and can take our time. It won’t be easy, we know this era can never be repeated, so it’ll be even more difficult.
“So far, we were evaluating what to do with Max, so did not contact any other Coaches. We have ideas, including some pretty clear ones, but have made no decisions.”
