Juve start new boss search

Massimiliano Allegri's five-year spell in charge of Juventus will come to an end after the Turin-based club's final game of the season later this month.

The 51-year-old has won the Serie A title in each of his five seasons with Juve while he guided the club to two Champions League finals, which they lost to Barcelona in 2015 and Real Madrid two years ago.

Juventus signed Cristiano Ronaldo last summer for £99.2million in an attempt to land European club football's most prestigious trophy, but they lost to Ajax in the quarter-finals.

Juve entertain Atalanta in their penultimate league game of the season on Sunday before visiting Sampdoria on the last day of the campaign on 26th May.

"Massimiliano Allegri will not sit on the Juventus bench next season," read an official statement from Juventus. "The coach and president Andrea Agnelli will face the media together tomorrow, Saturday, in a press conference which will be held at 2pm at the Allianz Stadium."

As well as guiding Juve to five Serie A titles, Allegri won four Coppa Italias and two Supercoppa Italia crowns during his time at the Allianz Stadium.

He spent four years as AC Milan's manager before joining Juventus in July 2014.

Earlier in his managerial career he had spells in charge of Sassuolo and Cagliari while during his playing days he starred for the likes of Pescara and Livorno before retiring in 2003.

Juventus are 12/1 to beat Atalanta this weekend. Atalanta are 1/6 to finish in the top four this season.
