The day after he was sacked, Juventus players continue to pay tribute to Max Allegri, with Danilo, Dusan Vlahovic, Tim Weah, Filip Kostic and Kenan Yildiz among those sending messages.

The coach was fired on Friday afternoon with a statement noting that his behaviour during and after the Coppa Italia Final victory over Atalanta was “incompatible” with the values of the club.

Paolo Montero, a former defender who is currently in charge of the Under-19 youth team, is going to sit on the bench for the final two games of the Serie A season.

Meanwhile, players got over the initial shock and have been sending messages to say goodbye to Allegri.

“I thank you for everything and will never forget you,” wrote teenage Turkish sensation Kenan Yildiz on Instagram.

Danilo was named captain of the team by Allegri and reminded the coach of his own motto.

“Ciao Max, you always said that words don’t count for much, it’s action that matters. But I still wanted to make those words public,” wrote the Brazilian.

“Victories are always wonderful, but they do not always allow us to grow, whereas difficult moments force us to mature and allow us to see what every individual is made of.

“Having said that, our moments of difficulty over the last three years were immense, and you and your staff never let go, never allowed us to stop fighting even for one day.

“This lesson will remain with us forever, in football and in life. This means being Juventus! Thank you for everything. Ciao Mister.”

Vlahovic and Gatti thankful for Allegri lectures

Vlahovic had his clashes with Allegri on the touchline and in training, but showed he recognised it was for his own good.

“It is important to thank those who welcomed you as a youngster and helped you to become a man. Thank you for everything Mister! Thank you also to your staff: Landu, Trombe, Aldo, Prof and Stefano.”

Defender Federico Gatti had a similar approach to his salute.

“Thank you for the faith, the advice and the telling off. I will always be grateful, Mister.”

Meanwhile, Adrien Rabiot, who had already written yesterday that Allegri “deserved a better goodbye” to the Bianconeri, confirmed he was anything but offended by that behaviour in the Coppa Italia Final.

Rabiot commented on the Instagram page of L’Equipe describing his coach going ‘completely mad’ with the response: “Greeeeeeeat Mister!”

It was also noted that during the incident that got Allegri sent off, Andrea Cambiaso was standing on the touchline visibly loving every moment of the jacket, tie and shirt tearing antics.

4 thought on “Juventus players thank Allegri after coach was fired”
  1. Danilo and Gatti should also leave with Allegri, without Allegri’s support, you two will not be playing with the first team!

  2. Armchair critics always think they know more about the game than those who work professionally.

    Well done, Mister Allegri!
    The corporate management along with armchair critics need their safe spaces from reality and authentic human emotion.

  3. Because those criticizing them actually know how to play professionally. Those three players whom you dismiss certainly understand the sport better than those who need a safe space from reality and human emotion.
