Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has renewed his contract with the Italian Champions until 2020.
Despite having lost the final of the Champions League 4-1 to Real Madrid in Cardiff last Saturday, the club has performed exceptionally well under the Italian tactician.
The 49-year-old manager has steered Juventus to great success in his three years in-charge of the Italian giants. The club has won three successive Serie A and Coppa Italia titles, also reaching the Champions League finals twice since Allegri replaced Antonio Conte in July 2014.
The club’s official website confirmed the extension by stating: “Juventus is pleased to announce that Massimiliano Allegri has signed a contract renewal at the club until 2020.
“Today’s agreement extends a working relationship that has seen the Bianconeri consolidate their position as Italy’s top team and also evolve into one of European football’s major forces.”
Another statement read: “Side by side, Juventus and Allegri have created history and legend. Now is the time to make the next step forwards together.”
The former AC Milan gaffer had previously extended his contract with Juve in May 2016, until the summer of 2018.
Juventus finished with 91 points this season, 4 points ahead of second-placed Roma, to be crowned as Italian champions for a sixth straight year.
