Juventus Women and coach Joe Montemurro are set to continue together. The Bianconere have confirmed that a contract extension for the coach has been agreed and signed. Montemurro‘s stay in Turin has been extended until 2026.

The former Arsenal Women coach took the reins at Juventus in 2021, succeeding Rita Guarino in the role.

In his first season in the job, Montemurro enjoyed unprecedented success for the Bianconere. As well as leading Juventus to the quarter-finals of the Women’s Champions League for the first time, he also sealed the Serie A Femminile title, the Coppa Italia, and the Supercoppa Italiana. That same season also saw them claim a historic win over eventual European champions Lyon at the Allianz Stadium in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie, courtesy of goals from Cristiana Girelli and Agnese Bonfantini.

Juventus‘ announcement came just days before their 2023/24 season opener, which sees them in Women’s Champions League qualification.
