Allegri: Winning in Juve's DNA

Max Allegri has no doubts about his Juventus successor because the club ‘will keep winning, it’s in their DNA.’

Allegri will leave Juve at the end of the season, but his final campaign at the helm has seen him not only win his fifth straight Scudetto but also inducted into the FIGC’s Hall of Fame.

“Juve will keep winning, it’s in their DNA,” said the Coach.

“I leave behind a winning team, I’m happy with how these years have passed and I take this opportunity to thank everyone.

“I can’t give any advice over my successor, but whoever it is will have a strong club behind them.

“To achieve big objectives in football, as in life, you need to be brave and carefree.

“Today I had lunch with Marcello Lippi and together we’ve won 10 League titles, so therefore Juventus will keep winning.

“I’m happy to have had five extraordinary years at the club. I thank everyone, from the President to kit-men who were important to me, especially in the successes.

“Only those who have values, in addition to technical ones, can achieve certain results. When we get older, we get wiser and more sensible.”

The 51-year-old also revealed he would donate his most recent Scudetto medal to the Italian football museum at Coverciano.

“I’ve decided to leave behind the medal of the last Scudetto I’ve won. It’s an honour to be a part of Italian football history.

“This memento marks the end of an extraordinary five years.”
