The recent sacking of Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri could potentially end in a court case, according to reports from La Gazzetta dello Sport on Sunday morning.

Allegri was officially sacked on Friday, following Wednesday’s Coppa Italia final, where, despite Juventus lifting the trophy, the coach erupted on the touchline, before making a series of alleged personal threats to Tuttosport editor Guido Vaciago. La Gazzetta reports that Juventus consider themselves negatively affected by Friday’s dismissal, and have evaluated the possibility of a dismissal for cause. If this is the case, Juventus could get away with not having to pay the remaining 7 million euros on Allegri’s contract, which was due to expire in the summer of 2025. According to the report, the former Bianconeri coach has not yet decided on his next steps. If just cause is found, he could still appeal. He will have five days from the date of his dismissal to answer the disciplinary questions presented to him by CEO Maurizio Scanavino on behalf of the club’s lawyers at the time. If Juventus prove that they did not have just cause, or if they do and Allegri successfully appeals, the coach will be entitled to the 7 million euros owed to him from the remaining year on his contract in full, plus potential compensation for reputational damage.
