Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri renews contract until 2020


Massimiliano Allegri has signed an extension to his contract as Juvenuts manager, keeping him with the club until 2020.

Allegri, who also guided the Italian side to the Coppa Italia, has won the domestic double every year since he took over from Antonio Conte in 2014 and boasts a win rate of 69%.

The deal was announced Wednesday, four days after the team's Champions League final loss to Real Madrid.

"Despite defeat in last weekend's Champions League final in Cardiff, Allegri has undeniably transformed the club into a significant player on the continent".

The 49-year-old's deal was due to expire at the end of next season, but he has made a decision to stay put for two additional years.

This afternoon the club has confirmed the contract extension, but Allegri will now be tied to the Bianconeri until 2020.

"Since his arrival in July 2014, he has allowed the team to continue on its path of growth in Italy, which began three years earlier, and increasingly consolidate its position as a top European team". There were even reports that Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) offered him 10 million euros ($11.2 million).

"Side by side, Juventus and Allegri have created history and legend", said a Juventus statement.

Allegri has won 84 of his 114 Serie A matches in charge of Juve, with his side scoring 224 goals and conceding just 71 in that time.
