- Massimiliano Allegri could still end up as the next Arsenal manager, claims Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.
- The 50-year-old manager recently refuted all Allegri Arsenal claims by stating that he will be staying in Turin this summer
- Juve Allegri has been a massive success, winning 4 Scudetto and 4 Italian cups during his time at the club so far
After Juventus’ title-sealing 0-0 draw at AS Roma this weekend, Massimiliano Allegri laid to rest all reports projecting him as the next Arsenal manager by stating that he will be staying in Turin this summer. That was thought to be that with hopes of the Juve Allegri association set to continue beyond this season but Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport has made a startling Juventus transfer news claim that the ‘Allegri Arsenal’ move could still be on and the Gunners fans might be in for some positive Arsenal news on this front in the coming days.
Speaking after the season’s penultimate game against AS Roma at the Olimpico, Massimiliano Allegri manager stated in clear terms that he was happy to take his association with the club forward and challenge for the fifth straight Scudetto under his ‘Juve Allegri’ term. “If they don’t fire me, then I think I’m staying at Juventus next year too,” said Allegri, in response to Arsenal latest news coming in that Allegri Arsenal could be the next Arsenal manager.
The Massimiliano Allegri Arsenal manager move also depends on a number of other factors other than the 50-year-old tactician’s own will. It is believed that having won four Scudettos and four Italian Cups in four seasons at Juventus, some of Juve Allegri’s close friends are advising him to seek a new challenge in a different country, far from the tense atmosphere of the Italian football. However, various family issues like Allegri manager’s young son going to school in Turin are also likely to affect the Massimiliano Allegri Arsenal move.
Massimiliano Allegri new Arsenal manager?
Amid all the Arsenal news, Arsenal latest news, Juventus news, Arsenal manager updates and Juventus transfer news, one thing which has been confirmed is that the former AC Milan boss will not be taking a sabbatical this summer. Allegri Arsenal and Juve Allegri both remain a possibility at this juncture with the man himself prioritizing a stay at the Old Lady. However, it is also possible that Massimiliano Allegri might be tempted into accepting an offer from a Premier League club if his terms are accepted and met.
Juventus chief executive Beppe Marotta also believes that Massimiliano Allegri will continue as head coach of the Serie A champions. “We will have a discussion with him in the coming days, it also depends on his feeling and evaluations. On our part there is great optimism,” he said.
“Beyond the formal aspect, the two-year contract that he still has with us, the assessment is that of a relationship that has worked at its fullest. The coach has proven his worth and I believe this relationship will continue.”
Marotta also revealed that the golden era overseen by Juve Allegri was certainly not anticipated when he succeeded club great Antonio Conte in 2014, six months on from being sacked by AC Milan. “We remember very well when he arrived, we were greeted by a hundred angry fans,” he recalled. “That was the climate of that time, tied to a bad appreciation of the facts. We were sure of our choice and solved a problem in that moment.”
In conclusion, Marotta added: “Over the past 20 years the profile of the coach has changed. It is someone who should be good at managing the group and must be able to prepare the team, but also manage men and communicate with players.”
