Max Allegri has been appointed for the second time as Juventus manager after sacking Andrea Pirlo.
Juventus announced on Friday morning that Pirlo had been relieved of his duties, again after just one year at the helm.
Allegri previously managed the Serie A giants from 2014 to 2019, winning five consecutive Serie A titles.
The Italian was replaced by compatriot Maurizio Sarri, who spent just one season in charge of the Old Lady before Pirlo was given the top job in Turin.
Juventus finished fourth in Serie A under Pirlo, 13 points behind league-winners Inter Milan.
Allegri has been out of work since he left Juventus in 2019.
He had been linked with the Paris Saint-Germain job before Mauricio Pochettino filled the post and more recently the Tottenham position.
Juventus announced Allegri's appointment with a series of cryptic tweets on Friday afternoon.
