FC's Gab Marcotti examines what comes next for Massimiliano Allegri after Juventus announced he is leaving the Serie A giants at the end of the season.

This was only the second time Juventus had won four consecutive Scudetto titles (the last time being from 1931 to 1935, when they won five Scudetto titles in a row).

Pochettino has also been a target for both Manchester United and Real Madrid, and has hinted he could leave if his side win the Champions League.

After eight years of domestic dominance, Juventus crave another European crown and this season's quarter-final exit against Ajax in the Champions League was a huge disappointment after signing Cristiano Ronaldo last summer for a fee reported to be 100million euros.
