Italian giant Juventus moved swiftly to name a successor to Antonio Conte following his resignation on Tuesday night, appointing former AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri to the post on Wednesday morning. Allegri, who was fired by Milan in January, spent four seasons as coach of the Rossoneri, winning the Serie A title in his debut campaign in 2011.

"It's an honor for me, I'm very happy and I know what a big job coaching Juventus is," Allegri said during his press unveiling Wednesday. "I've taken over a team that has won trophies for the last three years, I will try to play my part so we can have more success."

Allegri faces a tall task in replacing Conte, who presided over one of the most successful spells in Juve history, winning Serie A in three consecutive seasons, in addition to two Italian Super Cups. On Tuesday, the 44-year-old Conte said he had taken the club as far as he could.

"I have decided to terminate my contract with Juventus," he said. "I have matured with time and my feelings led me to make this choice. It may be more difficult to keep winning with Juventus."

Conte, a former Italy international, spent 13 years as a player with Juventus, winning five Italian Serie A titles as well as a UEFA Champions League. As coach of Juve, he led the club to a league record of 102 points last season -- 17 ahead of second-place Roma. Read the original story...
