Allegri 'always a Juve fan!'

Juventus patron John Elkann reveals new Coach Massimiliano Allegri “has always been a Bianconeri fan!”

The former Milan tactician took over from Antonio Conte last month and was greeted with mixed reactions from the supporters.

“There is a new Coach with a new generation of fans,” Elkann told Sky Sport Italia. “We have always done great things and I am sure we can continue that with Allegri.

“He feels profoundly connected to Juventus and confessed to me he has always been a Bianconeri fan! A new era begins and it will certainly be ambitious.”

Meanwhile, Conte is officially the new Coach of the Italy squad after terminating his Juve contract by mutual consent.

“I sent a personal message to Conte. It will be a great challenge for him and we hope he’ll be as successful as always.

“Juventus will provide the spine of the Nazionale and there’s everything needed to do well.”
