It’s been a season of inconsistency for Italian giants, Juventus and that was glaring in their recent result against AC Milan at the Allianz Stadium where they failed to break down their opponent, thereby sharing the points after the game ended in a goalless draw. These results saw them fall back in the title race earlier this year.

And it has increased the speculations surrounding their manager, Massimiliano Allegri with many reports claiming that he would be sacked at the end of the season, and Thiago Motta the most likely candidate to replace him. But for the coach, he has already expressed his willingness to stay at the club and now, he’s getting some support from the fans of the club.

Following their chants during the Milan match in support of the coach, Juve ultras also held up a giant banner asking Allegri to extend his contract.The Bianconeri are stuttering towards a third-place finish in Serie A this season, but did qualify for the Coppa Italia Final against Atalanta on May 15.

Along with the results, many supporters are unhappy with Allegri’s style of football and would relish a change at the helm for next season. However, the official ultras groups love Allegri, regularly chanting for him during games, even when that is met by a barrage of jeers from other sections of the Allianz Juventus Stadium.

Following the 0-0 draw with Milan, the Viking Juve group held up a huge banner outside the arena that was a direct message to the coach. ‘Mister Allegri you have to stay, we want to go to the World Cup with you!’ The Bianconeri have qualified for the 2025 edition of the FIFA Club World Cup, which will be hosted by the United States of America.

It runs from June 15 to July 13, 2025, so that is technically after Allegri’s contract is due to expire on June 30. So this is effectively a plea for Allegri to not only remain next season, but also to extend his current contract beyond the summer of 2025. In his post match interview, he was asked for his thoughts on his future and how the team has performed this season.

“I love players who are technically gifted, I grew up with a coach who never once mentioned a system. These are questions for the club. “I am just trying to focus on the end of the season and putting out a team that is balanced. This second half showed a lot more confidence, I am very happy with the performance and football can be played in many ways, there’s no single approach that guarantees victory.

“The squad needs to be evaluated, the club will decide if it needs to be reinforced or if it’s fine as it is for next season.”Was Juventus winning the Coppa Italia and making it to the Champions League be the best case scenario for Allegri to see out the last year of his contract in Turin?

“I was always told nothing is certain in life. I am very pleased with the work the lads have done. We were given two objectives this season, we are very close to achieving both of them.“Last season we lost the Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana right at the end, these are lads who are growing with these important matches.” He further added.

Meanwhile…

Tim Weah feels he is ‘improving every day’ at Juventus and admits it is ‘always special’ to play against Milan, where his father George was a hero. The USMNT international started on the right wing in this draw and gave his first post-match interview in the Italian language.

“It was a good game in a difficult moment for the team, but we must continue working well and staying concentrated for the next match,” Weah told DAZN. The 24-year-old has now made 31 competitive appearances for Juventus, scoring one goal and providing two assists.Does he feel that he is improving under Allegri and in Italian football?

“I feel good, I am happy here and it is a great opportunity for me. I am improving every day. I like to attack, it’s a challenge this season to be in a more defensive role, it’s a new position, but I am getting better.”

He is the son of former Milan striker George Weah, so naturally facing the Rossoneri is going to be a different occasion to the usual Serie A routine.“It is always special to play against Milan, a team that means a lot to my family and my father. I am very happy.” He further added.
