Cristiano Ronaldo Has Told Juventus Chiefs Who He Wants As Next Manager
Max Allegri's announcement on Friday means that Juventus are looking for a new manager for next season and Cristiano Ronaldo has urged the club who to sign to replace the Italian.
You have to go back a while since someone who wasn't called Antonio Conte or Max Allegri won the Serie A title as a manager. Conte won the Italian title three times from 2011/12 to 2013/14 before leaving Juventus and Allegri carried on where his predecessor left off with five of his own titles.
Before that run for Juve the last team to win the league were AC Milan in 2010/11, when Allegri was in charge of the Rossoneri.
Allegri's most recent title this season has been one of the easiest and with two games left they lead Napoli by 13 points, after recently taking their foot off the gas.
The one problem for the manager has been trying to end the club's 23 years without winning the Champions League and now it's someone else's problem with Allegri standing down.
Mauricio Pochettino's run to the final of Europe's premier competition this season has put him in the frame whilst many are predicting a return to Turin for Conte.
However according to multiple reports in Italy, via Football Italia, Cristiano Ronaldo has been to Juve chiefs to urge them to reunite him with former Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti.
The pair worked together between 2013 and 2015 when the Italian helped Rea to win their 10th European title, or La Decima, which several managers had tried and failed to do.
Ancelotti then had a short time in Germany, winning the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich in his one full season in charge, before returning to Italy with Napoli last May
The Azzurri have once again finished second to their rivals in the league title under Ancelotti and they only managed to make the Europa League quarter finals after being knocked out of the Champions League group, where they faced PSG and Liverpool.
Ancelotti's contract in Naples runs until 2021 and it seems unlikely that he'd leave for Juventus after just one year in charge.
Ronaldo and his teammates will finally be hoping to end their clubs barren spell in the Champions League but who will be in charge?
