Juventus have announced the departure of head coach Andrea Pirlo as Massimiliano Allegri looks set to return to the club as his successor.
Pirlo signed a two-year deal to take over from Maurizio Sarri as Bianconeri boss last August, but the 42-year-old rookie boss failed to live up to expectations.
The former Italy playmaker failed to guide Juve to what would have been a 10th consecutive Serie A title and has paid the price after just one season in charge.
Juventus edged into the Champions League for 2021-22 by finishing fourth as Inter won the Scudetto.
The Turin giants tumbled out of this season’s Champions League in March at the hands of Porto, losing on away goals at the round-of-16 stage.
