TMW Radio

The former president of Juventus, Giovanni Cobolli Gigli, spoke to TMW Radio after the dismissal of Massimiliano Allegri which arrived a short while ago with an official statement from the Juventus club.

A first comment on Allegri’s dismissal by Juventus.
“We have to take things as they are. Juve decided to get another coach, trying to take advantage of the outburst that Allegri produced after the match against Atalanta.”

What kind of closure do you expect?
“I really can’t tell you whether the dismissal now includes an agreement on severance pay or whether Juventus will pay all of Allegri’s remaining emoluments”

What kind of messages have you seen from the team?
“I think the team played well against Atalanta and I saw them very united in the satisfaction of the victory. I saw that the players tried to involve Allegri and showed him sporting affection. This was particularly clear towards him. They made him fly in the air, then when he got angry, they tried to get in the way to prevent things from getting worse.”

The statement.
“Juventus announces that it has relieved Massimiliano Allegri from the role of coach of the men’s first team. The dismissal follows certain behaviors during and after the Italian Cup final which the club deemed not compatible with the values ​​of Juventus and with the behavior that those who represent it must have. A period of collaboration ends, which began in 2014, started again in 2021 and ended after the last 3 seasons together with the Italian Cup Final. The club wishes Massimiliano Allegri good luck in his projects future”.
