Juventus won the title under Allegri’s guidance, but were knocked out of the Champions League in the quarter-final stages by Ajax, prompting widespread calls for his dismissal.
And despite some talk he could do a job swap with Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea, Allegri has confirmed his intention to take time away from the sport.
“I am going to take a year off to recharge the batteries and take my personal life back in hand, rediscover after many years the affection of my family, children and friends.
“The last 16 years have felt like being in a blender. You have to take time away from what you usually spend with family and friends.
“I’ll use this year to recharge my batteries ahead of the next season,” Allegri said at an event on leadership in Milan on Thursday evening.
