Juve Give Allegri Contract Extension

allegri-juventus-newMassimiliano Allegri has told Juventus fans that the best is still to come after he extended his contract with the club through 2018.

A club statement read:

“Juventus Football Club is delighted to announce that Massimiliano Allegri has signed an extended contract that ties him to the club until 30 June 2018.

“Following his first season in the Bianconeri dugout, which yielded Scudetto honours and an historic 10th Coppa Italia success, Allegri penned a new agreement until 2017, and his fine work in steering the club to Italian Super Cup and Quinquennio glory has been rewarded by another fresh deal.”

Allegri was not the unanimous choice of the Juventus fans to replace Antonio Conte but after winning the Serie A and Coppa Italia league and cup double last season, about about to do it all again if the Bianconeri beat AC Milan on May 21, it is far to say that Allegi has won over the Juventus faithful.

With five consecutive Serie A titles to their name, Allegri is looking setting his sights higher next year, saying that European success must be one of the club’s main priorities.

“Juventus must think about winning the Champions League now,” the tactician told the press. “Juve have the obligation of putting in big performances in the Champions League, and when I say big I mean one on par with the biggest teams in Europe.”
