The Bianconeri have suffered a disappointing start to the new season.

Juventus executive Maurizio Arrivabene has dismissed rumours around the possible sacking of Massimiliano Allegri.

Juventus have only won only two of their nine games across all competitions so far this season.

A 2-1 defeat against Benfica saw Juve slip to third place in Group H of the Champions League. The Bianconeri then lost 1-0 against Monza on Sunday. 

However, Juve’s current form hasn’t convinced the bosses to part ways with the 55-year-old.

“Changing would be madness,” Arrivabene told DAZN before the Monza defeat. “Today, problems must be lived and seen at 360 degrees; we have come out of difficult years that have weighed on everyone’s skin, not just football.

“The responsibility is running Juventus; carrying out summary trials or pointing at a culprit does not help a club like Juve to work.

“Max not only has a contract but a four-year programme. I have a CEO programme. If you are looking for a culprit, it’s me.

“The CEO is at the top of the company; if things don’t work out somehow, it’s also my job to make them work.

“Looking ahead, there are three very important elements: humility, clarity, determination. We need to look ahead together.”

Juve will host Bologna in their first game after the international break on October 2nd.
