Juventus had to axe Max

Max Allegri will go down as one of the greatest Coaches in Juventus history, yet Vilizar Yakimov thinks that letting go was the only decision the club could’ve made.

Massimiliano Allegri leaves with 11 trophies, two Champions League finals in only five years with a 71% win ratio in all competitions. Juventus’ decision to part ways with Allegri doesn’t only mean that the Bianconeri will have a new Coach starting from next season, but it also marks the end of an era in Turin.
