Massimiliano Allegri has committed his future by signing a new one-year contract with the Italian champions Juventus, after an impressive season which could still see his side win a domestic double if they beat AC Milan in Coppa Italia.

The Italian, who took control of the Old Lady back in 2014, has guided his side to two Serie A titles in two years.
It is understood that the Leghorn-born coach was under pressure following a poor start to the campaign this season, but the Turin club claimed another league title at the end of last month.
“Juventus Football Club is delighted to announce that Massimiliano Allegri has signed an extended contract that ties him to the club until June 30, 2018,” read the statement.
“Following his first season in the Bianconeri dugout, which yielded Scudetto honours and an historic 10th Coppa Italia success, Allegri penned a new agreement until 2017, and his fine work in steering the club to Italian Super Cup and Quinquennio glory has been rewarded by another fresh deal.”
Shortly after signing a new contract, the 48-year-old took to twitter to express his delight at committing to two more years with the Serie A champions.
