Allegri: I’ll stay at Juventus next season if they don’t sack me

The Italian led the Turin side to another domestic double, and is in demand throughout Europe, but insists he is going nowhere this summer

In-demand Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri said he will stay in Turin if he is not sacked by the Italian champions.

Linked with Premier League duo Arsenal and Chelsea as well as Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain, Allegri guided Juve to a seventh successive Scudetto on Sunday.

A goalless draw against Roma sealed a fourth consecutive Serie A title for Allegri, whose future has been a talking point during the closing stages of the season amid Arsene Wenger’s departure from Arsenal, Unai Emery’s PSG exit and uncertainty over Antonio Conte at Chelsea.

However, Allegri told reporters: “If they don’t sack me, I’ll stay at Juventus next year too.”

Former AC Milan boss Allegri moved to Juventus in 2014, replacing Conte at the Italian champions.

Since arriving four years ago, the 50-year-old has led Juve to two Champions League finals, while winning four Coppa Italia trophies and a Supercoppa Italiana.

He became the first-ever manager to win four consecutive domestic doubles in Europe’s top five leagues as Juve lifted the Serie A title for a 34th time on Sunday.

It was Allegri’s fifth Serie A title overall, having previously guided Milan to the top of the Italian table in 2010-11.
