Massimiliano Allegri could replace Antonio Conte at Inter Milan.
Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan have been very underwhelming this season, to say the least. After getting ousted in the group stage of the Champions League, the position of Conte is under scrutiny. With an incredibly stacked and talented squad, they were considered to be one of the challengers to top their group. But instead, they finished a shocking last place in the group, an absolute waste of abilities of the squad.
With Conte under fire, the highly wanted chair has again been found in search of a suitor. A lot more was expected from a side that went to the Europa League semis in the previous season and finished second in the league.
As we understand from Calcio Mercato‘s reports, ex Juventus boss, Massimiliano Allegri, is one of the frontrunners for the Nerazzurri job. An experienced manager, well versed in the tactics of Serie A and a serial winner of the league; Allegri brings in the right mentality needed to win.
Allegri is currently out of work and has drawn links to a whole array of clubs whilst he has taken time away from football with French champions Paris Saint-Germain one of the clubs to have been heavily linked with him. The 53-year-old was in charge of Juventus for five years until 2019, and naturally, won five league titles, 4 Coppa Italia trophies, 2 Super Cups, and 2 Champions League runners-up medals.
But Allegri has been often pointed out for his failure to land the coveted Champions League trophy; despite coming close to winning on two occasions, he was denied by either of the El Clasico clubs each time. In the end, Conte and Allegri have just as much silverware to show for their efforts in Europe. However, Allegri made Juventus a part of the conversation, which is as much as you can ask for as a supporter, one could argue.
It remains to be seen if the management trusts Conte for a longer tenure or they hand it over to someone else if not Allegri.
