Paolo Montero will take charge of Serie A side Juventus for the remainder of the season following the dismissal of Massimiliano Allegri.

Juventus sacked their former head coach Allegri on Friday over his behaviour during and after this week’s Coppa Italia final in which he was sent off, ending a long period of speculation over his future.

Montero, who coaches Juventus’ Under-19s team, will take charge for their remaining two matches, at Bologna on Monday and against Monza at home on May 26.

The 52-year-old Uruguayan won four Serie A titles playing for Juventus as a defender from 1996 to 2005 and will take his first training session on Sunday.

“Paolo is a Juventus legend, firstly on the pitch, and someone who has long been a bearer of the club’s DNA on the bench,” Juve said in a statement.

“Best of luck, Paolo!”

Juve are assured of Champions League qualification but could still finish between third and fifth in Serie A this season.
