Juventus manager, Massimiliano Allegri has confirmed that he will remain at the club next season, amid speculation regarding his future following their exit at the hands of Ajax in the quarter-final stage of the UEFA Champions League.
Allegri is widely considered to be one of the best managers in the world and has been successful during his time in Turin, with the Italian confirming that he has already spoken to club president, Andrea Agnelli, over his future plans.
"I already talked with the president, I will remain at Juve next season and we are already planning the next campaign," said Allegri, as quoted by ESPN.

Allegri admitted that they were keen to win the Champions League this season but were knocked out by an Ajax side who cannot be considered as the underdogs, considering that they had beaten the defending champions, Real Madrid, in the previous round.
"Ajax have several good players and play good football, they are no underdogs. How they can be after scoring five goals against Real Madrid [in the previous round]? I would not say that this is our worst elimination. Juventus have always the same objective: Winning everything. Sometimes you can reach the final, sometimes you can't."
The 51-year-old who moved to Juventus from Milan in 2014, has helped the club win four consecutive domestic doubles so far, while also leading them to the finals of the Champions League on two occasions.
