After the dramatic 2022/2023 season, where Juve, alternating between thriller and detective in the style of John Grisham, claimed second place, and eventually took seventh; where Juve managed to play in the Champions League as badly as they have ever performed in recent decades (1 win and 5 losses in 6 matches in the group); where, according to the results of the season, the bianconeri did not win a single trophy (you can read more about the results of last season here), the management decided that it was time for a change. Moreover, the changes came from the top and already during the championship 22/23.
However, this is only one of the phases of transformation undertaken by the Old Signora. Next, we will consider all the changes that have taken place in Juventus in recent years, and also fix the position of the team before the start of the upcoming Italian championship.

The departure of Beppa Marotta, the purchase of Cristiano Ronaldo and the installation of Fabio Paraticci as sports CEO. All the signs of a revolution. Its reasons are obvious: Agnelli, after an unsuccessful final in the Champions League 2017, decided that the missing piece in this puzzle called “triumph in the Champions League” is the goal-scoring machine, aka Mister Champions League – Cristiano Ronaldo. In addition, after many years of collaboration with sports management guru Beppe Marotta Agnelli decided that Beppe is not indispensable. And the successes that came under Marotta are a matter of course. In addition, Beppe, according to rumors, was skeptical about the financial side of the deal to buy Ronaldo. But his protégé and permanent assistant, Fabio Paraticci, on the contrary, indulged the president. It should be noted that Beppe’s contract was also expiring, and the president did not consider it necessary to renew it. As a result, Agnelli decided that Fabio could also cope with Beppe’s tasks.
Inviting Sarri to transform the team’s game, achieving the seemingly unattainable – winning the Champions League. Agnelli heeded the requests of the fans and decided to change the DNA of Juve, namely: to rebuild football “for the result” in an attacking, technical and modern football. But Sarri was not given time for this, despite the Scudetto won. By the way, the last championship won in recent years. The president wanted everything at once, and then the departure from Lyon in the 1/8 Champions League and an unconvincing victory in the Italian championship. It must be admitted that as a result of Sarri’s coaching, the team did not begin to play better than under Allegri, but in fairness it must be repeated that Maurizio was not given time to implement his ideas, and also did not give those players who would become conductors of Sarri’s ideas on the field.
Yes, here you can add that Sarri made mistakes. In particular, he expelled Mandzhukich from the team almost by the collar, underestimated Pjanic, believing that no one can cope with the role of regista better than Jorginho, but this does not detract from the above. Sarri was not given time to correct both his own and other people’s mistakes, breaking the contract with him and paying substantial compensation.
The dismissal of Sarri and the appointment of the greatest regista of all time (according to the author) – Andrea Pirlo as head coach. This little revolution, like the one that took place not in the Apennines, but in France in 1830, which is also known as the July Revolution, happened just as relatively quietly and quickly as in France. In just three days. Sarri was quickly fired, but they did not dare to change the vector of football (pressing, attacking manner and holding the ball), inviting Pirlo.
The collapse of the semblance of a republic, a rollback to imperial traditions. Since we have made an allusion to the history of the French revolutions, the fourth reformation in Juve is similar to the return of Napoleon (read – Allegri) to the French throne and the restoration of the Empire in 1815.
I believe that Agnelli fired Allegri at the end of 19 for very simple reasons: the lack of a long-awaited and much-desired victory in the Champions League. The presence of internal trophies no longer bothered anyone: neither the fans nor the president.
By the way, that Juve ‘s campaign in the Champions League remains the most successful in recent years (neither Sarri, nor Pirlo, nor Allegri 2.0 went beyond the 1/8 playoffs). Who would have thought then in the 18/19 season that this would be the most successful campaign for Juve with Ronaldo?
Subsequently, probably, Agnelli realized that under Max, everything was not so bad. That’s what life does to us: we don’t keep what we have, when we lose it, we cry. If earlier Juve “fattened” and did not consider it to be a victory within Italy, now Agnelli, in the absence of almost any trophies, decided to roll back to the proven fighter Max Allegri. An unpretentious coach, non-confrontational, diplomatic, capable of even turning Mario Mandzukic into a left winger, and what a one!
