Juventus in TURMOIL as Allegri fights for job, Ultras turn on Bonucci and even players are laying into crisis-club

    JUVENTUS are suffering their biggest crisis in more than a decade with manager Max Allegri and captain Leandro Bonucci at the brunt of the chaos.

    The Italian giants sit eighth in the Serie A table after just two wins from their opening seven matches.

    They have also lost both Champions League games so far against Paris Saint-Germain and Benfica.

    According to Calcio Mercato, Allegri is set for crunch talks with Juve’s board on Friday as pressure intensifies surrounding his position at the club.

    He managed to secure them fourth place and Champions League football last season.

    But their inability to kick on from that could leave him in a perilous situation despite his five Serie A titles in a row between 2015 and 2019.

    And Allegri was given a police escort back to his car after their defeat to Monza at the weekend.

    But he isn’t the only Juve star feeling the heat.

    Skipper Bonucci has been ripped apart by his OWN SUPPORTERS.

    The Juventus ultras released a statement earlier this week in which they slammed the Italian centre-back.

    It read: “Leonardo Bonucci HAS NEVER BEEN A LEADER AND NEVER WILL BE: neither at Inter, nor at Treviso, neither at Pisa, nor at Bari, nor at Milan, nor at Juventus and like him the others who support him.

    “In this particular moment of general confusion where both among the players and in Juventus and in the corners, we are witnessing a moment of total anarchy where anyone who wants to, in turn, stands as connoisseur, leader, leader and manager without who has the charisma and not even the recognition of the people or those who have known the environment for years.

    “If there are hierarchical scales, there will be a reason: a good soldier is not necessarily a good leader.”

    It went on to add: “Bringing professional players as sacrificial victims to watch the curve while they whistle and insult them, creating legitimacy for the contestation one month before the start of the season is SIMPLY ABSURD.

    “The result can only be absurd. the formation of a weak group full of negativity and victimization. Exactly the opposite of what is needed in sport, especially at these levels and in a team sport.

    “Their profession and their knowledge. You are doing more harm to your teammates and to the team than any coach, trainer and/or manager who is incapable.”

    Juventus have also been criticised by two players who found a way out of the club in the summer.

    Midfielder Denis Zakaria, who joined Chelsea on loan, has accused Allegri of failing to establish a relationship with him.

    The Swiss star said: “I’ll find myself better in England. Allegri? We didn’t talk much.”

    And Matthijs de Ligt, who sealed a move to Bayern Munich in July, claims Juve were not ambitious enough in Europe.

    The Netherlands international said: “Bayern want to win the Champions League, an ambition that I felt less in Turin.”

    Juve have not won the Champions League since 1996, losing in the final in 1997, 1998, 2003, 2015 and 2017.

    At domestic level, they won nine Serie A titles in a row between 2012 and 2020.

    But in 2021 they finished 13 points adrift of Inter Milan, while last season they were 16 behind AC Milan.
