Massimiliano Allegri has insisted that he will only return to management when the time is right, following his recent departure from Juventus.
The Italian coach rounded off his five-year tenure at Juventus with a 2-0 defeat against Sampdoria on Sunday, with his makeshift side conceding two late goals from Gregoire Defrel and Gianluca Caprari.
Allegri was reflective after the defeat and he spoke about the next steps he’ll be taking in his career in his post-match comments – noting that he will not be rushing into making a decision just yet.
“When there will be an opportunity I will return to the bench otherwise I will take a year off,” he told DAZN, as quoted by Calciomercato.
“If I have the opportunity to choose I will choose a team that I like. Concrete offers? Still no, talking about the future now makes no sense.”
There is still no confirmation over who Allegri’s replacement at Juventus might be, but he was confident that whoever takes over will be able to deliver further success for I Bianconeri.
