Will Juventus Keep the Faith in Max Allegri?

They always say that you shouldn't go back, and perhaps Massimiliano Allegri is regretting his decision to serve a second stint at Juventus. The Italian was immensely successful at the Turin club the first time around, securing five successive Serie A titles between the 2014-15 season and the 2018-19 campaign.

However, it appears that the magic has worn off for the 55-year-old, whose team sit seventh in the 2022/23 Serie A standings right now and are not seen as favourites to even qualify for the Champions League, according to the best football betting sites. Granted, they have been hit with a 15-point deduction for capital gain violations, although that would still have them well behind runaway leaders Napoli and it might be that Allegri decides to bring an end to proceedings come the end of the season.

With Antonio Conte having left Tottenham, Julian Nagelsmann being sacked by Bayern Munich and Mauricio Pochettino remaining a free agent, Juve might be considering their next move as far as a new manager is concerned. We look at some of the leading contenders.

Antonio Conte Now a Free Agent After Spurs Departure

It's fair to say that Antonio Conte might be staying put in Italy after a second English adventure ended badly. The Italian did manage to steer Tottenham Hotspur into the Champions League last season, although he recently departed after an exit to Milan in that competition.

Conte seemed permanently at loggerheads with the club's board, and his next managerial role looks certain to be back in his native Italy as opposed to the Premier League, with many linking the former Juventus manager with a return to the Turin club, potentially this coming summer.

While Max Allegri continues in charge of Juve for now, Conte was manager of the Juventus team between 2011-2014. He won three Serie A titles during his time with the club and has largely been successful with all of his high-profile roles, having also won the Scudetto more recently with Inter. It's clear that he will be in demand over the coming weeks and months and is likely to feature highly on the list of favourites for big jobs on most betting apps this summer.

Nagelsmann Now a Free Agent After Bayern Munich Sacking

Julian Nagelsmann is another high-profile candidate who is now a free agent after Bayern Munich decided to dispense with his services. The 35-year-old was a huge money hire in the summer of 2021 and was instantly successful at the Bavarian club when steering them to the German Bundesliga title.

However, it was proving to be a difficult second season at the Allianz Arena despite beating Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League and being one of the favourites for the trophy with most new betting sites. The German is now considering his next move after being replaced by Thomas Tuchel, and he is still very much in the infancy of what could prove to be a spectacular managerial career.

Perhaps the idea of undertaking a project at Juventus might appeal to Nagelsmann, and the possibility of Max Allegri stepping aside this summer could allow him to take the reins in Turin, with his track record at Hoffenheim and Leipzig having been impressive.

Would Zidane Consider a Return to Turin?

Zinedine Zidane has previously been the clear favourite with the bookies for the Juventus manager position. The Frenchman truly exceeded expectations at the Santiago Bernabeu, although the former World Player of the Year stepped down after previously returning in 2019 to enjoy a second stint at this famous club. Betting sites previously made him a solid favourite to take over from the struggling Andrea Pirlo before Allegri got the nod.

It’s entirely plausible that Juventus might look to him in order to bounce back from an underwhelming start to the season, with the former midfielder having previously turned out for the Old Lady, where he won two Scudettos with the Turin club, giving him legendary status.

Zidane has proved adept at working with world-leading players including Cristiano Ronaldo, with the 50-year-old having also guided Real Madrid to three Champions League successes, and he’s regarded as a world-leading manager who might relish the chance to resurrect the fortunes of an ailing club.

Paolo Montero Could Be Ready for Promotion to Top Job

Paolo Montero could be among the betting favourites for the Juventus manager's job, with this coach already on the payroll at the club, and he's highly regarded after doing some sterling work with the youth team players.

Montero is currently in charge of the Juventus under-19 squad and is part of the club's fabric, having made 186 appearances as a player for the Old Lady between 1996-2005. During that time he won four Scudettos and would surely love the oppportunity to take charge of the first team and potentially restore their fortunes.

The Uruguayan does have some experience of managing in his native country and Argentina before returning to Italy, and there have been press reports that he might be able to step into the void if Allegri does decide to leave.

Is Diego Simeone Ready for a New Challenge?

Nobody can deny that Diego Simeone is one of the leading club managers in the world, and the Argentine is a massive legend at Atletico Madrid considering that he has had the team competing hard with Barcelona and Real Madrid for countless years, with the manager having won two La Liga titles during his time at the club.

Simeone has been in charge of Atletico since 2011, and he guided the club to a first league title success during the 2013/14 season. They were also finalists in the Champions League at the end of the 2013/14 and 2015/16 seasons.

It might be that Simeone becomes a one-club manager, and the Argentine has a massive bond with the passionate fanbase at the Wanda Metropolitano. However, the 52-year-old might feel as though he’s ready to test himself in another competitive European domestic league, and they don’t come much bigger than Juventus.

Could Simone Inzaghi Make the Step Up From Inter?

Inzaghi has previously been manager of Lazio and was heavily linked to the vacant post at Tottenham Hotspur, although the Italian didn't want to make the move to England. His achievements at the Stadio Olimpico did not go unnoticed by the powers-that-be at Internazionale, and perhaps Juventus might try to swoop for this sought-after manager.

Inzaghi impressed with Lazio considering the fairly modest resources at his disposal compared to some of the bigger clubs in Italy, with the 46-year-old having been part of the coaching staff at the Italian capital club since 2010, and there could be some merit in encouraging him to lay the foundations for a potentially bright future at Juve.

Inzaghi held contract talks with Lazio at the end of the 2020/21 season before replacing Antonio Conte at Inter, although he has also talked about his personal ambition, and that might see him leave Milan in order to further his managerial career, with Juventus an obvious fit for someone who wants to play attacking football.

Fabio Cannavaro Could Be a Left-Field Pick at Juventus

It is clear that Juventus hold plenty of stock with hiring ex-playing legends after their recruitment of Andrea Pirlo and it could be that they take a punt on Fabio Cannavaro who has publicly declared an interest in returning to Italy and taking charge at the Old Lady.

Cannavaro is one of the most decorated players in Serie A history, turning out for the Azzurri on 136 occasions and the 47-year-old has enjoyed a number of overseas managerial assignments which recently saw him take charge of the Chinese national team after previously coaching in the Chinese Super League.

Cannavaro told Il Bianconero: “If a call arrives in Italy I will be ready. Pirlo’s choice was very right, who wouldn’t have accepted? They focused on the championship with a coach who knows the Italian teams well and who has proved his worth once again."
