Capello: I Warned Allegri Against Juventus Return

Legendary Italian coach Fabio Capello reveals he suggested Massimiliano Allegri snub a return to Juventus.

Under Allegri the Old Lady has already lost four games this season, suffering back-to-back defeats against Sassuolo and Hellas Verona and are 16 behind table leaders Napoli and Milan.


The team has been sent into training retreat until the November break. They face Zenit and Fiorentina at the Allianz Stadium this week.

Allegri returned to Juventus in the summer, two years after his sacking, but things are surely not going as he would expect.

And former Juventus coach Capello revealed he had suggested Allegri snub a return to the Allianz Stadium.

“I told him that he would have become the scapegoat for all problems,” Capello told Radio Anch’io, as quoted by Calciomercato.com.

“I told him not to return. Juventus have a winning DNA, but right now, you can’t see it.

“Players are not doing what they should. Everybody thinks it’s the coach’s fault, but it’s not like this, it’s not easy to turn the situation around.”

Capello spent two years in Turin as a coach, winning the Serie A titles twice.

However, the Scudettos won under his tenure were revoked after the Calciopoli scandal that saw Juventus relegated to Serie B.
