Allegri And juventus Part Ways

Spread the love

 

A failure to win the Champions League after signing Cristiano Ronaldo appears to have cost the coach his job
Juventus have announced that head coach Massimiliano Allegri will leave the club at the end of the 2018-19 season.
The Italian boss’ future has been in question since being dumped out of the Champions League at the hands of Ajax, with the Italian champions having been firmly among the favourites to lift the crown.
Indeed, two finals have been reached during Allegri’s five-year spell at the club and the arrival or Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer was seen as the final piece of the puzzle required for the Old Lady to go all the way.

Having failed to do so, the Bianconeri and the 51-year-old are set to part ways in the summer. A statement on the club’s website reads:
“Massimiliano Allegri will not sit on the Juventus bench in the 2019-2020 season.
“The coach and the president, Andrea Agnelli, will meet the media together at a press conference, which will be held tomorrow, Saturday 18 May, at 2pm (CET) in the conference hall of the Allianz Stadium.”
No statements have been made by either party as to where Allegri – who has won five Scudetti, four Coppa Italia trophies and two Supercoppa Italiana titles during his time in Turin – will end up next season.
Chelsea could be an option for the Italian, with Maurizio Sarri’s future up in the air following an inconsistent season, while Bayern Munich could also be interested as they look set to part ways with Niko Kovac in the summer.
As for who will take over from Allegri, Antonio Conte’s recent admission that there is a 60 per cent chance he would return to coach in the Italian top flight next term could put him in the frame, though the former Italy boss has also been linked with Roma and Inter.

Jose Mourinho is also out of work since being released by Manchester United last year, and the Portuguese trainer has said that he will only return to coaching if the right club with the right ambitions becomes available.
In a recent interview with L’Equipe, Mourinho was asked about the possibility of taking over at Paris Saint-Germain after stating that he knew the reasons behind their European exit at the hands of United, but would not comment due to Thomas Tuchel already being at the club.
Still, the Portuguese’s close relationship with sporting director Antero Henrique and excellent track record in the Champions League continues to see rumours of a move to the Parc des Princes dugout swirl.

Eyewitness narrates knife attack on Arsenal players Ozil, Kolasinac in London

An eyewitness has given an account on the knife attack on Arsenal stars, Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac on Thursday.

The duo were chased for a mile by knife-wielding motorbike riders in an attempted daylight car-jacking in north London.

Ozil, who earns £350,000-a-week, was ambushed as he drove his black Mercedes G-Class through Childs Hill at around 5pm.

But as the thugs surrounded his SUV, Ozil’s teammate and childhood friend, Sead ‘The Tank’ Kolasinac, took them on.

Financial worker Azuka Alintah, 36, told the MailOnline: “Ozil looked absolutely terrified, as anybody would after being chased by men with knives.

“He looked like he was running for his life. And I suppose he was.

“I saw him disappear into the restaurant with the motorcycle guys on his tail.

“They didn’t take off their helmets and were all in black, wearing long sleeved tops in this hot weather. They stood out.

“God knows what would have happened if they’d caught him. It looked to me like he’d have been hacked to shreds and he clearly thought so too.

“As soon as the restaurant staff started to come to the window and to the doorway, they turned around and roared off.”

The police have opened an investigation into the attack.

The goalkeeper can’t stop replaying that losing moment in the semi-final against Algeria, wishing it would’ve turned out differently somehow
Daniel Akpeyi defended his teammates from criticism following Nigeria’s 2-1 defeat to Algeria in Sunday’s Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) semi-final.
The Super Eagles looked to be in with a great chance of beating Djamel Belmadi’s men to reach the competition’s final after dismissing South Africa in the quarter-final.

However, a Riyad Mahrez last-minute free-kick sent Gernot Rohr’s men crashing after Odion Ighalo had erased Willam Troost-Ekong’s own goal.

Rohr’s team faced the wrath of fans for offering precious little in Cairo, but Akpeyi believes otherwise.
