For sacked coaches Max Allegri and Maurizio Sarri, Juventus will pay a hefty sum in compensation across three years. Juventus will pay over €40 million for sacking coaches Allegri and Sarri.
According to IlBianconero.com (via Italy24News), Juventus have spent a fortune on sacked coaches’ salaries over the last three years.
Juventus have spent over €40 million for three coaches, Allegri, Sarri, and current coach Andrea Pirlo in just two years.
Despite winning Serie A and still being under contract, the Bianconeri changed managers at the end of each of their last two seasons. So, as many as three managers led Juve in a span of two years.
Allegri was fired in the summer of 2019. He was shown the door despite winning five Scudetti in a row and reaching the Champions League final twice.
He still had a year left on his contract when he resigned in 2019. So, he went on sabbatical till his deal expired, keeping his full salary.
Sarri took his place but he too was fired. Juve fired him in August 2020 to make room for Andrea Pirlo.
His current contract lasts until June 2022. Juve will have to pay him a full year’s salary even if it is terminated early and the coach transfers.
The club had hoped that, by now, Sarri would’ve accepted a proposal from another club. They wanted to part ways amicably- in other words, not pay the full amount of the coach’s compensation.
Instead, Sarri’ll be under contract until June 2022, and therefore will continue to receive a salary.
They would, of course, also need to pay new coach Andrea Pirlo’s salary, whether they retain him or fire him.
So, Juventus will pay over €40 million for sacking coaches so often, perhaps even more if they sack Pirlo now.
