Juventus has fired head coach Massimiliano Allegri on Friday. Paolo Montero will coach the team for the rest of the season.

Allegri — who has reportedly been on the way out since January — got terminated for his actions in the Coppa Italia game on Wednesday. That’s when Juventus won 1-0 over Atalanta.

“Juventus announces that it has relieved Massimiliano Allegri of his position as head coach of the men’s first team,” the team said in a statement. “The exoneration follows certain behaviours during and after the Coppa Italia final that the club deemed incompatible with the values of Juventus and the behaviour that those who represent it should have.

“It ends a period of collaboration, which began in 2014, restarted in 2021 and ended, after the previous three seasons together, with the Italian Cup final. The club wishes Massimiliano Allegri good luck in his future endeavours.”

The team has two regular seasons left. The first game is on Monday, May 20th against Bologna at 2:45 pm EST.

This matchup may feature Juventus’ next head coach. The Italian team is reportedly going to focus their search on Bologna head coach Thiago Motta.

Montero then will close out the regular season on May 26th against Monza.

Allegri was in his second stint with Juventus. He was previously their head coach from 2014 through 2019.
