Buffon: Allegri can open up new cycle at Juventus

Departing Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon is backing Max Allegri to get the club back on track.

As Buffon leaves this summer, Allegri has returned to the Bianconeri after two years away.

The veteran goalkeeper told TMW: "He is everything the directors think we need.

"He is a certainty in management, with how to get to the result, in what the players perceive.

"There is also a sort of awe on the part of the players, which never hurts. He could start another mini cycle."
