On Sunday, Series A Juventus appointed Paolo Montero as football's team head coach following the sacking of Massimiliano Allegri.

Montero, who is coaching Juventus' U-19 team, will take charge for their remaining two matches, at Bologna on Monday and against Monza at home on May 26.

Juve said in a statement: "Paolo is a Juventus legend, firstly on the pitch, and someone who has long been a bearer of the club's DNA on the bench."

On Friday, Serie A side Juventus sacked their coach Massimiliano Allegri, two days after capturing Coppa Italia title.

Allegri conducted several aggressive behaviours during the final of the Coppa Italia Cup, including the game's referee, the Sporting Director of the club, and journalists.

Juventus said in a statement that Allegri's behaviour was not in line with their "values."

The club's statement read: "The firing follows certain behaviours during and after the Italian Cup final that the club deemed incompatible with the values of Juventus, and the behaviour that those who represent it should have."

Allegri was also fined $5,400 by the Serie A league judge as he "acted aggressively" and used insulting language and gestures toward the referees.

The Italian football federation also commented on the incident saying: "We can confirm that an investigation on incident (that) happened during the Coppa Italia Final, in which ... Allegri and Tuttosport newspaper's director Guido Vaciago were involved, is in due course amongst the FIGC's Prosecutor Office."
