Massimiliano Allegri eager to coach in the Premier League

The accomplished Italian manager has won six Serie A trophies to his name yet has been without occupation for 18 months in the wake of leaving Juventus

Previous

Juventus

and

AC Milan

coach Massimiliano Allegri said he desires to coach a

Premier League

team. 

The 53-year-old, who has seen his name circling Manchester United and Arsenal among different clubs for managerial position, has been without a club since leaving The Old Lady toward the finish of the 2018-19 season. 

He won five successive

Serie A

titles in Turin, adding to the particular Scudetto he succeeded at Milan in 2011 – the last time a club other than Juventus won the Italian first-class trophy. 

Presently, Allegri is improving his English language aptitudes and searching for his next work. 

“I would like to experience the Premier League,” told The Times. “In Italy, I was in Milan for four years. Five years in Juventus. Now I expect (to work again) in Italy, but it is difficult, or in England.”

“For me, English football is improving now because there are a lot of foreign trainers. There are more tactics compared to ten years ago. England now is more sophisticated, and more tactical, but is also respecting the tradition of English football.

“It’s a good balance of the spirit of English football and the new quality and new tactical approach of the new coaches.

“The important thing is every country has its own history. England is different from Italy, which is different from Spain, from Germany. It’s difficult to change the history of the country.”

Allegri trusts

Liverpool

and

Bayern Munich

are the two best clubs in Europe at this moment, and he is an enthusiast of what Jurgen Klopp has accomplished at Anfield.

“Every year they improve the team. Liverpool have players who are very fast, technical, are physically stronger, and they have character.

“To win trophies, we need to have character, the technical, the tactical, and the physical. And all Liverpool players work very hard, every match. Liverpool have the right mentality.

“At Tottenham, [Jose] Mourinho has the balance with the pragmatic and the technical. Because Tottenham are a big team, with big players, and Mourinho is about the strategic. The trainer must respect the quality of his players. Mourinho understands his players. He’s doing a great job at Tottenham.

“Manchester City don’t have a big history like United, so [Pep] Guardiola can work with a ‘virgin’ club and has the possibility to work his own way.”
