OFFICIAL: Paolo Montero appointed Juventus coach for remaining two matches


Juventus have officially confirmed the appointment of Paolo Montero for the remaining two matches of the Serie A season. The Bianconeri parted ways with Max Allegri earlier this week, following the managers altercation with a journalist after the Coppa Italia final. Montero, the coach of the U19 team, has now been appointed to oversee the clubs final league games, as confirmed by a statement on the clubs official website:

Paolo Montero will take the reins of the Men’s First Team for the final two games of the Serie A season, which come away at Bologna and then at home to Monza.

Currently coach of our Under-19s team, who finished their season on Saturday, 18 May, Montero will take the step up to the First Team for what remains of the current campaign. He will take his first session with the squad on Sunday, before facing Bologna at 20:45 CEST on Monday evening at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.

He will then lead the Bianconeri for the season finale against Monza at the Allianz Stadium.

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, as was shown in the Juventus Creator Lab production ‘Plantar una Semilla’ just a few weeks ago.

Best of luck, Paolo!
