Former Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri said he has been forced to take a year off from football after not receiving any offers.

Allegri and Juve parted ways following an eighth consecutive Serie A title in 2018-19 and fifth under the Italian's leadership. The 51-year-old has been linked with Premier League giant Chelsea, which is reportedly poised to grant Maurizio Sarri a release ahead of his proposed move to Juve.

However, ex-AC Milan boss Allegri is set for some time away from the dugout following his Turin exit.

'Have to stop'

"Well my decision was even easier to take than I expected given that I haven't got an offer from any team," Allegri said. "So I have to stop. We are here today in this warm weather let's have a nice run and then we are ready for holidays."

Allegri was a surprise appointment at Juve in July 2014, his arrival initially met with some disapproval by the fans, but he added four Coppa Italia triumphs and two Champions League finals to his five top-flight crowns.
