Four players who could potentially cause Massimiliano Allegri to be sacked by Juventus - Massimiliano Allegri's future as Juventus allenatore is on the verge of being sacked. The news surfaced after several negative results obtained by the Bianconeri at the start of the 2022/2023 season.

Of the nine matches that have passed, Leonardo Bonucci and colleagues recorded two wins, four draws and three defeats. Finally, Juventus got an embarrassing result after being defeated by AC Monza with a narrow score of 0-1 in the seventh giornata of Serie A 2022/23.

In the match against Monza, Allegri did not accompany Juventus directly on the sidelines. However, prior to this defeat, voices for the former AC Milan coach to step down had echoed.

One of the directors of Juventus, Pavel Nedved has openly wanted to sack Allegri. In addition to the tactical approach factor, the squad factor owned by Juventus can also be the reason the 55-year-old coach's scheme is not optimal.

Here are four players who have the potential for Massimiliano Allegri to be sacked if his performances do not improve. Who are they? Check out the full list below

Weston McKennie

The first name that could get Allegri fired was Weston McKennie. The player from the United States highlighted his performance after playing disappointingly.

McKennie has started in two of Juve's seven Serie A games this season. However, it has not made a real contribution.

The former Schalke player has also only managed 0.2 tackles (second lowest after Dusan Vlahovic), four interceptions, and an average distance traveled (km) of 8.65 per game. Factors recovering from injury make the aggressive aspect that is owned by McKennie decreased compared to last season.

Juan Cuadrado

Juan Cuadrado actually played quite well when helping Juventus attack. Several times also the Colombian player managed to release an accurate pass that was able to present opportunities for the Bianconeri to score.

So far, Cuadrado is able to release 55 accurate passes with four of them successfully producing key passes that can lead to goals. Unfortunately, this record is not accompanied by a defensive aspect.

The 34-year-old player rarely tracks back when his team is counter-attacked and he is also very easily passed by opposing players. Noted, Cuadrado lost duels eight times so far. This proves that the right side of Juventus is most often attacked by opponents if he plays as a starter.

Alex Sandro

It is common knowledge that Alex Sandro's future is on the verge of exiting the Allianz Stadium. This can not be separated from the decline in the Brazilian passport player.

This season seems to be a tough period for Alex Sandro while defending the banner of Juventus. Allegri had to use Mattia De Sciglio to replace his role in the left wing-back sector.

It is recorded that until the seventh week of Serie A, Alex Sandro has played six times and has not shown his best level. In the Champions League the 31-year-old has never appeared.

Moise Kean

The last name that could potentially make Massimiliano Allegri sacked more quickly is Moise Kean. Kean was expected to be a solution for Juventus' front line after Alvaro Morata and Paulo Dybala left.

The 22-year-old has yet to make a meaningful contribution to the Bianconeri. Kean has only made eight appearances in various competitions and has yet to score or assist. This season, he is often used as a substitute.

The presence of Arkadiusz Milik and the minimal contribution he made were factors why the former Everton player was so marginalized in the Juventus squad.
