Man United have reportedly identified ex-Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri as a possible alternative to Mauricio Pochettino as they consider replacements for the Norwegian manager. It’s been a poor start to the campaign for Red Devils and it may be that the limitations of inexperienced manager are starting to show at Theatre of Dreams.
Despite a lot of initial good feeling towards Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, a legend at Man United from his playing days, it seems clear the team has not improved enough despite him getting many backing in the transfer market.
The experienced Max Allegri is now one of the options being looked at by Man United, alongside ex-Spurs manager Pochettino. Both are far bigger names and look more ideally suited to a big job like this one, though it stays to be seen if the Italian tactician would go down well with supporters.
Despite enjoying plenty of success at Allianz Stadium, Allegri isn’t known for getting his clubs to play particularly expansive football, which is a pretty important requirement at Man United.
It’s also a totally different challenge winning the title with this dominant Bianconeri due to the lack of contest in Serie A, with the Red Devils up against a lot of teams that are already a lot better than them in the PL.
Max Allegri has been out of work since departing the Old Lady in the summer of 2019, having guided the Italian club to five consecutive Serie A titles and two UCL finals. He also guided AC Milan to league glory in his preceding four-year stint at the San Siro.
