Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri on Saturday dismissed talk he is about to quit the Serie A champions, hitting back at the criticism he received following his side's Champions League quarter-final exit at the hands of Ajax. "Sometimes I wonder if I hadn't managed to bring home some trophies in these years, what would have happened?" asked the 51-year-old, who recently won his fifth league title is as many years. "Maybe they would have impaled me and burnt me at the stake." Allegri, speaking ahead of his side's Serie A trip to Roma on Sunday, said he was due to meet with club chairman Andrea Agnelli to discuss his plans for next season. "I have already told the chairman that I would like to stay, but now we need to talk," he said. "I have had the new Juventus in mind for six months, but first I need to meet Agnelli to see if we agree."
