Turin – tomorrow, Friday 23 Septemberwill meet one day Juventus Board of Directors. Not usually in the news, but this time the board has been held in high esteem by the media and fans as it comes at a critical moment in the Technical management by Massimiliano Allegri. So, we may go straight to the point: Can the board of directors decide to relieve Allegri, as many have claimed in recent days? Technically, it could give a title to management, but the premise that tomorrow’s board of directors is calling for management to change coach is quite remote, for two primary reasons.
a matter of jurisdiction
The company’s board of directors is a body that must Contributing to the management of the company It represents a kind of guarantee for its shareholders. Given these duties, the decision to dismiss the manager may be among the tasks The Juventus Council did not enter into technical issues of football Precisely because of the special nature of Juventus itself, a joint stock company, but also a football club. Juventus managers are managers with different skills, From economic to those in the media and in general in management. Nobody has football experience to discuss an issue like being exempted from a technical point of view, except of course Pavel NedvedAnd the Andrea lambs e Maurizio Arrivabene who are part of the board of directors and also represent Management. Therefore, even if the topic is discussed (let’s say that one of the members asks for clarification on the current technical crisis of the team), the situation will be clarified by the same management that confirms confidence in Allegri. In the past, the board has considered some purely football decisions (buy Cristiano Ronaldo For example), but always taking into account the economic side of the issue. The way Juventus is organized, the decisions are pure.football“They are delegated to directors who then report to the board and the association, but not to the board of directors.
Namely the fact that a file directors group Juventus deals with accounts instead of players and coaches, it is possible that this case is possible Allegri They are treated in terms of their financial consequences. How much would it cost to fire Allegri and hire another coach? Many. why me Money owed to Allegri will not be saved from now until the end of the contract In addition to these, the appointment of a new technician. It is true that the Board can make assessments on Loss of income in case of sporting failure of the seasonbut on September 23, at the beginning of the year, managers prefer to avoid making a decision that will expand Really high management costs, without ensuring that this is enough to avoid sporting failure and without making sure that continuing with Allegri will not solve the problem in the end. In short, admitted and not granted, the subject of Allegri ends up at a huge table for the headquarters designated to host the Board of Directors, and the hypothesis that he will come up with a decision to absolve is a long way off. The board will be more committed to the discussion Bad results for the 21-22 seasonwhich must be approved for presentation to the shareholders’ meeting (the date of which will be determined by the Board of Directors).
Save the fun?
So is Allegri considered safe? yes. Allegri’s assertion, reconfirmed even after the defeat to Monza, is currently unquestioned within Juventus, with the whole focus on how to help the coach find the right path. It is clearly a conditional confirmation of the resultsLike any technician. hard to create”Limit“With that confidence, but it seems clear that the managers want to see a truly defining turning point in the five-game cycle in less than two weeks that will happen when the championship resumes. 2 to 15 October, Juventus will face Bologna, Maccabi, Milan and Maccabi again, then the derby with Torino. After these five races, the scenario will be more clear, because without a reaction from the team, scenarios can be opened to change the coach. but The most credible is that Juventus will draw the results at the end of the first part of the seasonWhen the separation world begins. At this point the fate of the European will be clear (the round of 16 in the Champions League or the European League) and the place in the league. If Allegri’s fate is in doubt, it is more likely to happen in mid-November than in mid-October.
Were the other coaches called after that? No, despite the rumours. Juventus has not contacted any other coachalerted those of the youth sector (see Montero). At the moment the management is doing everything they can to make this technical project a success (in which the directors are also involved) and contacting other technicians will be destabilizing, in short, a special goal that you avoid if you are still hoping to win the game. When serious explorations of an alternative to Allegri begin, it will be a sign that Allegri’s fate is sealed.. At the moment it still is.
