Allegri brushes off PSG link

Juventus coach insists he wants to stay with the Italian champions

SERIE A
 JUVENTUS AC MILAN

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri insisted on Friday (March 30) he wants to continue working at the Italian champions despite reported interest from French league leaders Paris Saint-Germain.

“I’ve a contract with Juventus until 2020. I’m happy here and my intention is to stay,” Allegri told a press conference ahead of a Serie A game against AC Milan on Sunday morning (Singapore time).

Allegri, 50, arrived at Juventus in 2014 and has been hugely successful.

He has won three Italian league titles – to add to the one he had already won with AC Milan – and four Italian Cups with the Turin giants as well as reaching two Champions League finals in 2015 and 2017.

Juventus are on track for a seventh straight Serie A title, and will play Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals over two legs next month. – AFP
