Max Allegri on ‘standby’ for incredible Juventus return with Sarri facing the sack if he loses to Inter on Sunday – The Sun

JUVENTUS could plot a sensational return for Max Allegri if they decide to sack boss Maurizio Sarri, according to reports.

The Italian could face the axe if they lose their huge Serie A title clash against rivals Inter Milan this weekend.

Sarri is facing increasing scrutiny at the Old Lady after attacking his players publicly following their 1-0 Champions League defeat to Lyon.

According to La Repubblica, Allegri is being lined up for a second stint in Turin if the board are forced to make a decision.

Sarri’s style at Napoli won him many admirers, but there is little sign of the quick passing he thrives on within the Juve side.

After the Lyon loss, he said: "I don’t know why I cannot get the players to understand the importance of moving the ball quickly. This is fundamental, we’ll keep working on it and sooner or later this concept will get into their heads.

"I continued to tell them, and there were many who were doing it, moving the ball too slowly and therefore getting into the wrong positions."

Juventus sit top of Serie A but are just one point ahead of Lazio and six ahead of Inter who have played a game less.

Chiefs fear that Sarri's outspoken criticism could see a further decline in their performances between now and the end of the season.
