Massimiliano Allegri brushed aside speculation about Cristiano Ronaldo's Juventus future insisting Tuesday the Portugal captain was fired up for the new season.

Allegri, 53, returns as Juve coach two years after being replaced despite winning a fifth consecutive league title, paying for the club's failure in the Champions League they last won in 1996.

It was Allegri who brought Champions League record goal scorer Ronaldo to Turin in 2018 on a four-year deal to try and win the European title after finishing runners-up in 2015 and 2017.

Allegri told a press conference of the five-time Ballon d'Or winner who had been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Allegri won 11 trophies during his half-a-decade spell with Juve, also winning the Serie A title with AC Milan in 2011.

Allegri's first task will be to recapture the title from Inter Milan, who he believes start the season as "favorites," and try to end their drought in the Champions League.

Meanwhile, club president Andrea Agnelli confirmed veteran captain Giorgio Chiellini was ready to sign a new contract after leading Italy to the Euro 2020 title.

Juve finished fourth last season and open their campaign at Udinese on August 22.
