Massimiliano Allegri has said he will take some time out of the game to rest, after his Juventus exit was confirmed.

The club announced on Friday that the manager would not be returning for next season.

Allegri has taken Juve to two Champions League finals but, with the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo last summer, more was expected from the side in Europe this term.

The decision to move on does not come as a major shock, and while Allegri does not know who will replace him, he is confident that the club will be able to attract another top coach to carry on the legacy.

“The name of the next coach? That I don’t know, someone needs to be on the bench, but I don’t know who.

“In any case they will choose a great coach because Juve is a great club,” he told Italian TV programme, Striscia La Notizia.

Allegri has won five Scudetti, four Coppa Italia trophies and two Supercoppa Italiana titles during his time in Turin, winning the league in each of his seasons with the club.

The 51-year-old is proud of what he managed to accomplish in Turin and does not seem to be holding any regrets.

“They were five marvelous years, five years is a lot for me.

“Six months to build a team and then leave like this? What do you mean six months? Five years to build Juventus.

“Life is like this, things come and go,” he added.
