On the eve of the match against Atalanta, John Elkann wanted to express all his confidence in the coach, asking him to work for a new cycle
There’s a storm outside, but Juve and Max Allegri team up in the face of difficulties and relaunch (indeed, double) for an ever greener future. The indiscretion is on the lips of those who weigh in on Continassa: the well-informed swear that on the eve of the match against Atalanta John Elkann wanted to express all his trust to the coach from Livorno, asking him to work hard also for a new cycle. The same sources ensure that Max appreciated the messages of esteem and has given his availability for this new phase. So much so that it is reported that the interview ended with an appointment at the end of the season to renew a contract which, right now, expires in 2025 with a salary of 8 million net per season.
The prospect is to extend the bond for at least another two years and therefore aim for 2027, with a supervisory mandate, beyond the narrow responsibilities of the first team. In fact, he is known as the president Ferrero and the ceo Scanavino will encourage the policy that leads to the enhancement of the many young talents already in the black and white orbit. It is too early to talk about the new figures, but it is clear that the pact made in these very delicate situations aims to motivate the protagonists of this controversial season as much as possible. Regardless of the still possible objectives in the various competitions, the Agnelli family company wants to plan in time and without jolts. It is easy to foresee that in the summer some of the black and white stars will change address and the owners want that in the next few months (with possible further judicial turmoil) Continassa will be better equipped for the inevitable changes taking place.

And it will not go unnoticed that the novelties looming in the sports area are maturing in harmony with the needs indicated by Max Allegri. From this point of view, the choices of Francesco Calvo, with the promotion of Giovanni Manna as sporting director, go hand in hand with the involvement of Marco Storari and Gianluca Pessotto in the first team. And in the scouting area the name of Simone Tognon could grow if Matteo Tognozzi were to look elsewhere for a top management position. Another important step is John Elkann’s entry into the field: his presence at the Stadium on Sunday was not only symbolic, but proof of how much he wants to be close to “his” Juve. After cousin Andrea Agnelli’s departure from the scene, the cue is clearly in his hands. And those who have seen him at work in these hot moments guarantee that he is already indicating the guidelines for the new course. A clear change of strategy, with a nice shuffling of cards and men, but with Allegri always in the front row. If we believe this reconstruction, it can be deduced that the rumors of a change on the Juventus bench that had given strength to the candidacies of Zidane and Conte for next season are more distant. This is today, tomorrow (obviously) can change quickly. However, the link between Allegri and the Agnelli family appears increasingly solid at the moment.
