With Massimiliano Allegri set to leave this summer, we’re taking a look at the Juventus next manager odds to see who is favourite to succeed him.
Allegri will be a hard act to follow, having secured five straight Serie A titles and four Coppa Italia triumphs, as well as reaching two Champions League finals.
However, the list of potential replacements is predictably impressive:
MAURIZIO SARRI @ 5/2
The 60-year-old knows the Italian game inside out following spells with a whole host of clubs, working his way up from the lower divisions before rising to prominence at Napoli. Sarri enhanced his reputation by playing free-flowing football with that last-named club and may relish a return home after an up-and-down stint at Chelsea.
PEP GUARDIOLA @ 3/1
After signing Cristiano Ronaldo last summer, it is fair to say that Juve’s ambition knows no bounds and luring Guardiola to Turin would be another amazing coup. Italy would seem the logical next step for a manager who has flourished in Spain, Germany and England, but Pep has repeatedly insisted he will still be at Manchester City next season – and who could blame him for staying there?
SIMONE INZAGHI @ 4/1
Lazio haven’t had the best of campaigns in Serie A, but they did recently lift the Coppa Italia by beating Atalanta 2-0, having earlier knocked out both Milan clubs, so Inzaghi knows how to get a team up for big matches, which could appeal to the Bianconeri board.
ANTONIO CONTE @ 4/1
Enjoyed a successful spell in charge of the Old Lady between 2011 and 2014, delivering a hat-trick of Serie A titles, having also been an icon as a player in the black and white stripes from 1991 to 2004. Won the Premier League at the first time of asking with Chelsea and left on a high after following that up with an FA Cup success the next season. Would be a popular choice amongst most supporters, plus will be refreshed and refocused almost a year after leaving the Blues.
DIDIER DESCHAMPS @ 5/1
Another former Juventus midfielder and manager, who won the Serie B title and got the club promoted back to the top flight following its demotion for match-fixing. His star is still in the ascendancy after leading France to World Cup glory, but tempting the 50-year-old to leave Les Bleus before Euro 2020 will take some doing.
MAURICIO POCHETTINO @ 6/1
Has claimed he could leave Tottenham if they win the Champions League and lifting that trophy would certainly make the Argentinian an attractive contender for this job. Pochettino is also renowned for playing attacking football and has blooded young players throughout his career, but he did sign a new five-year contract with Spurs last year and Daniel Levy is not an easy man to negotiate with.
JOSE MOURINHO @ 14/1
Won two Serie A titles and the Champions League when based in Italy with Inter Milan and has experience of working alongside Ronaldo at Real Madrid. Could be seen as a solid short-term option until Guardiola becomes available, which makes his price tempting in the Juventus next manager odds.
