Ferrara: Time for Juventus and Allegri to part ways

Former Juventus defender Ciro Ferrara expects Max Allegri to leave at the end of the season.

Ferrara discussed Allegri ahead of tonight's Coppa Italia final against Atalanta.

He told Sportmediaset: "The two teams arrive at this final in totally opposite ways from a physical and mental point of view, but it's a final and even if Atalanta seems to be better, the result is really open, it's difficult to give percentages.

"Knowing Juventus' history, I expect a reaction to a championship finish that isn't up to par.

"It's difficult to understand, you have to be in it. I imagine that no one can be happy with this end of the championship beyond the objective achieved and the possibility of being able to win a trophy, it was a second part of the season that was in great difficulty. I don't know who is to blame, it's difficult to understand.

"I don't know the dynamics but I've already expressed my feeling... Max has done a great job, but I don't think Juventus will start from him again next year. This is my feeling because in the end it's the environment we find ourselves in at a particular moment and probably after many years spent together it is also right that they part ways."
