Massimiliano Allegri

      Massimiliano Allegri confirmed his reputation as one of the finest Italian coaches in the business after his debut season in Turin saw him steer the Bianconeri to a fourth successive Scudetto and a tenth Coppa Italia in the club’s history.

      Upon inheriting a group of players, already accustomed to winning under previous incumbent Antonio Conte, the Tuscan tactician gradually introduced his own methods on the squad, eventually guiding them to a first Champions League final in 12 years.

      The 48-year-old added to the Bianconeri’s domestic double by leading his men to a record seventh Super Cup triumph in Shanghai during the side’s build-up to the 2015/16 campaign.

      Allegri arrived in Turin having already established his managerial credentials at the very highest level with Milan. His arrival in 2010 sparked a remarkable upturn in fortunes that would result in the Rossoneri ending their seven-year Scudetto drought during his first year at the helm.

      This feat saw him become one of the youngest coaches to ever win the title, earning him the Serie A 2010/11 manager of the year award in the process.

      A former midfielder who enjoyed a 19-year professional playing career, the Livorno-born coach first came to national prominence in 2008, when he masterminded an historic promotion into Serie B for Sassuolo.

      His achievements with the Neroverdi attracted the attentions of Cagliari, whose owner, Massimo Cellino, moved quickly to install him as the club’s new manager for the 2008/09 season.

      Despite working with limited resources in Sardinia, Allegri lifted the Rossoblu to a highly respectable ninth-placed finish in his first campaign in charge.

      This, coupled with the eye-catching football on show, saw him scoop the prestigious 2008/09 ‘Panchina d’Oro’ (Golden Bench) award.

      Now, having already built on the Bianconeri’s recent success, Allegri looks to bring through a fresh generation of players on to conquering further titles for the club. His winning pedigree and propensity for attacking, attractive football has already made him the perfect fit for a brand new era in Turin.
