Despite bankruptcy: Allegri to extend Juve’s contract
Juventus coach Juventus Turin is expected to renew his contract early despite defeat in the Champions League final. However, Allegri has high demands. Italy’s record champion Juventus Turin apparently wants to work with coach Massimiliano Allegri in the long run, despite losing 4-1 to Real Madrid in the Champions League final. The 49-year-old is expected to extend his salary by another two years until 2020 ahead of schedule, but the coach is calling for a significant increase in his salary from 5.5 million to 8.0 million euros per annum. This is reported by the Gazzetta dello Sport. Allegri, however, has called for the commitment of three star players for the coming season to remain internationally competitive,”My disappointment with the Champions League defeat is as great as my pride in the team’s performances this season. Now we take a break to start the new season even stronger. Real Madrid were the favourites, and Juve must continue on his way to reach the level of the Spaniards,”said Allegri,” Juves World Champion Sami Khedira is battling it out after the clear bankruptcy in Cardiff,”The defeat is painful because we wanted to conquer the triple. We’ve given everything we’ve got. We can look back with pride on our achievements in the Champions League. It was almost a perfect way to the final. Now we have to learn from the defeat, we’re going to fight for the Champions League trophy again next season,”said Khedira, captain and goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, who was greeted by fans at the Turin airport after returning from Cardiff with much applause from the Tifosi,”I have one last chance next year to win the royal class title. I still have a one-year contract and we will fight for the trophy next season,”the 39-year-old emphasized.
