Welcome everyone to my new Football Manager story! I had some amazing feedback from my work with Lazio which was my first ever FM story. I feel that now that I know the ropes and have grown as a writer I can now take my stories to the next level.

Massimiliano Allegri Fired Following Fan Exodus
Recently appointed Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has been sacked after a petition against his arrival was signed by 30,000 fans of the Turin club.
Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli has caved into pressure from the club's fans and terminated former AC Milan manager Allegri's contract only one week after his appointment to the Serie A champions.
Juve fans started a petition following the announcement of their new manager and seven days later the plea to be rid of Allegri was 30,000 signatures strong. Andrea Agnelli has addressed the media following the decision and was quick to reassure the fans that they are valued and a new manager will be appointed soon: "We apologize to Massimiliano for wasting his time, but at Juventus Football Club the fans mean everything. The board and I want to assure the fans that we will explore all avenues and make sure that Antonio [Conte]'s hard work does not become undone. We will bring in a manager who will retain our Scudetto and take the club to the next step." Allegri has been unavailable to comment but it is believed that he accepted mutual termination of his 2 year contract and will not receive a compensation package.
The rumours have began as to who will be the new manager in Turin for the new Serie A season with former Zenit manager Luciano Spalletti the current bookies favourite. The other front-runners are as follows:
Luciano Spalletti 3/1
Roberto Mancini 5/1
Cesare Prandelli 7/1
Michael Laudrup 10/1
Gianluca Vialli 15/1
David Moyes 100/1
