sport news Massimiliano Allegri facing HUGE Juventus rebuild after trophyless season trends now
The curtain will come down on Juventus' season in Florence at the weekend without a trophy to show for it.
Instead, as of this week, Juventus CEO Maurizio Arrivabene and sporting director Federico Cherubini have been planning the necessary rebuild that comes from such an abject campaign.
Massimiliano Allegri has the backing of the board but finds himself in a very delicate moment in Juventus' history.

And yet the phenomenon of popular dissatisfaction towards one of the most successful men in the history of the club continues to linger in Turin. Allegri has never been completely loved despite the five consecutive Scudettos he won in his first spell in charge.
Since his return to the Juventus bench, the #AllegriOut hashtags continue to flood the internet, and now he has no silverware to placate his critics with.
Many players in this squad seem to no longer be able to compete at the highest level, which sets up a busy summer in and out of the Allianz Stadium.
Alex Sandro, Mattia De Sciglio, Federico Bernardeschi, Daniele Rugani and Moise Kean have all, for very different reasons, failed to grasp their opportunities and now it is necessary to look for new stars in the summer market to withstand the pressure of victory.

From the perspective of the Juventus fans, Allegri carries the can for failing to establish a winning football philosophy since coming back.
The words of Carlos Tevez come to mind when, after a substitution in his time as a Juventus player, called Allegri 'Cagon' (coward in Spanish).
Allegri's stylistic approach is a far cry from the in-vogue approaches of modern coaches such as Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Julian Nagelsmann.
The Italian's aim is simply to win, by any means, and often that has produced some eye-sore displays (without the winning, too!)
Massimiliano Allegri finds himself in a very delicate moment in the history of the football club
This year Allegri played without Miralem Pjanic, a player he would have liked to bring back to Turin in the summer or in January.
His 4-3-3 has been downsized several times to a slow and predictable 4-4-2, and this aspect has greatly unnerved the fans who are eager for more aggression from the team.
Juventus are falling behind the two Milan clubs but how long that lasts depends: when will they finally play to the strengths of their best players?BUILD AROUND VLAHOVIC
Among Allegri's most pressing concerns during this rebuild must be focusing his entire operation around Dusan Vlahovic.
During this season Allegri has, on several occasions, brought on a defender to replace Vlahovic, much to the ire of the fans.
For Andrea Agnelli, Allegri is untouchable, that much is clear, but next season will be a decisive one for him and perhaps also for the President.
Allegri retains the unconditional trust of Agnelli and also of 100 per cent of the changing room.
But he will have to do much better than this negative season in which he has collected fewer points than Pirlo, the man he replaced. There is no way to sugarcoat it.
Dusan Vlahovic arrived for £62m from Juventus but they have been unable to play to strengths
Vlahovic's arrival should required a 4-3-3 system where team-mates force feed him the ball
He has made numerous errors: underestimating the shift needed to play without Cristiano Ronaldo being one and then failing to properly play to Vlahovic's strengths, after he arrived in January, being the other
If Allegri fails to take advantage of Vlahovic in the next 12 months, his position will be in real jeopardy.
Juventus 2.0 must be built around the Serbian striker in a way that enhances his characteristics which made him so feared at Fiorentina.
Vlahovic has an excellent relationship with Allegri, which helped seal his move to Juventus, but as he showed when he ripped off his runners-up medal in the Coppa Italia final aftermath, he needs to be winning to be kept happy.MOVE ON FROM DYBALA
The departures at the weekend were emotional but it is imperative the narrative around the club shifts quickly.
