Juventus manager Max Allegri is in no danger of any termination following his team’s loss to Maccabi Haifa on Tuesday night in the UEFA Champions League.
After Tuesday’s 2-0 loss to Maccabi Haifa, the Bianconeri are currently in a tough spot to qualify for the UEFA Europa League, having only won once in their last four Champions League matches. They will play Paris Saint-Germain and Benfica in their remaining matches.
Despite the ongoing crisis, club chairman Andrea Agnelli has confirmed that the Italian will stay on as the club’s manager for the time being.
The club’s chairman told Sky (via TMW): “I speak of the group, it cannot be the fault of the coach if we do not win a fight, Max Allegri is the Juventus coach and he will remain Juventus coach. A group must have the ability to rediscover identity and put back on the pitch the qualities that this squad has.”
Agnelli was also asked about whether he believes that there are enough leaders in the current squad and he stated that he does think the squad has leaders, but the ongoing period is quite a negative one. He stated that the side has to win a string of matches to get their morale back up.
