“Juve, you want Allegri. “This is the opening title on the cover of The Gazzetta dello Sport in today’s issue. Pirlo is walking a tightrope, and everything indicates that if he does not beat Naples in the postponed match of the first round he could be fired.
And this is where the figure of the former Juventine technician appears. Agnelli has contacted with Allegri and he cannot afford to be left out of the top four of the Serie A championship, something unimaginable for the bottom nine champion ‘Scudetti’.
For his part, Allegri’s mentor, Giovanni Galeone, sees him very early on the bench, without mentioning Juventus: “Does Allegri have an offer from Juve? I don’t rule it out. I heard it a couple of days ago and I’m sure I’ll be back in June, so I’ll have something in hand. “
“He has excellent relations with Agnelli, they also heard him several times last year. They have not completely abandoned each other. I do not know if his return is possible and in what conditions. If you had asked me a year ago I would have ruled it out. Not now” , adds Galeone, who gives his version of why Pirlo has not succeeded: “he is still a very player.”
Meanwhile, authorized voices outside the club, such as Fabio Cannavaro, ask for patience with the ‘young’ coach Pirlo: “Protect Andrea. Look at how Gattuso has grown.”
