Montero set to temporarily take charge of Juve for the final two matches.

Paolo Montero will take charge of Juventus on an interim basis for the final two games after Max Allegri was sacked. But an announcement will not be made until Saturday to avoid a suspension.

A statement from the club on Friday confirmed that Allegri had been sacked for conduct inconsistent with Juventus’ values. UFABET

Former defender Montero will replace him for the final two games of the 2023-24 season, having currently coached the U19s.

However, there is a good reason why this will not be confirmed until Saturday afternoon local time.

That’s because Montero has been banned from coaching the youth team. So there will be no confirmation until the U19s play on Saturday.

Montero will then be free to sit out Monday’s clash with Bologna and the final game of the season against Monza.

The former Uruguayan defender played for Juventus from 1996 to 2005. Before becoming a coach in South America and Italy, before returning to Turin in 2022 to join the youth system.

For next season, it is widely reported that Juve are close to reaching an agreement with Bologna coach Thiago Motta.

Paolo found himself in Turin this week and, over cappuccino with Chimenti and Secco (can you pick a more random crowd?) gave an interview to Tuttosport that is quite interesting. Here’s how that went.
