What did he do?
"Stripped" on the sidelines while screaming at the fourth official and then towards the stands asking about the ref's chief - this was in anger over the ref of course - during the post game celebrations on the pitch was caught blatantly telling Giuntoli and the rest of the FO - his bosses - to stay away, that they didn't belong celebrating with him, his staff and the players, then allegedly verbally assaulted, and threatened to physically assault the editor in chief of Tuttosport(Turin's sports' daily newspaper, historically close to Turin's clubs of course, and the go-to media for Juventis and Torino fans)

Ah right thanks.

Guess he made it easy for Juve to get rid of him early then.

Allegri was sacked because he lost his mind after the italian cup final. Completely lost his mind. May be a while before he coaches in Italy again, if ever
He was getting sacked at the end of the season anyway. Wasn’t he?

yeah I guess he didn't want to go to Bologna and having to shake hands with Thiago Motta so he planned to not be able to attend

Ha! Oh yeah, they're playing Bologna next :D

Honestly I think it was just the perfect chance for a nice FU to Giuntoli, Elkann and co. With a trophy in hand and nothing left to play for
Why would Motta not want to stay with Bologna after getting them to the CL?
Realistically, because it's Juventus. Duh. It's his career, of course he'd want to make the step up. It's even a good time for it as they're in transition, so lowered expectations, more easily achievable goals, more time and patience, greater backing from the club and a young, theoretically highly coachable squad

Allegri at HT: "Lads, i don't give a feck about the result but remember, you are playing against your next manager. You might want to do a little better if you want to stay here next season."

Edit: Just realized he's already fired :lol:

Really nice touch at the start of the Cagliari Fiorentina game with the whole stadium (including the referee) standing and applauding Ranieri. His last game as a manager

What happened to Napoli this season?
Spalletti left + year long bender after winning the league + managers who either the players didn't like (Garcia) or just weren't good enough and realistically weren't sticking around(Mazzarri, Calzona). Once they found themselves struggling to fight for EL places they kind of let go, in terms of motivations

ADL choosing the wrong coach 3 times didn't help either. Investment should have been in the summer not January where it was some haphazard loans.

Ridiculous to have this much of a fall off

Udinese 15 minutes away from getting relegated but Kienan Davis stayed fit for 10 minutes in the season to score and keep them up. :D

They must've been in Serie A since the mid 90s and had some iconic players in that time so would've been a big shock to see them go down. Bizarre season where they won just six league games yet four of them were v Juventus, Bologna, Lazio and Milan (three of them away from home). Infact they only won one game at home all season.

Are the Pozzo family selling up as the way they're running Udinese and Watford currently doesn't really suggest forward thinking ownership anymore.

Serie A and Roma fans, how's the owner viewed? Looks likely he will take over us in the next few days.
