Pochettino favourite but Allegri in frame to replace Solskjaer at Manchester United
Massimiliano Allegri is in the frame to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Manchester United’s permanent manager – reports have claimed.
Solskjaer was brought back to the club just a few seasons ago and had a relatively good season with the club last year, guiding the club back into the top four spots and bringing a bit of excitement to the fans.
However, this summer has not gone to plan and there is no pressure on the shoulders of Solskjaer that he could be sacked sooner rather than later, especially after the humiliating 6-1 loss to Tottenham at the weekend.
Recent reports have claimed that United have reached out to Mauricio Pochettino about possibly coming back into management and replacing Solskjaer following the 6-1 loss to Tottenham before the International break
The club is not prepared to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer just yet, but Ed Woodward is making contingency plans if the club does opt to go in a new direction, and Those plans would include Pochettino, who has not taken a job since leaving Spurs last year as he awaits the perfect opportunity.
However, the Daily Express has claimed Allegri has been identified as an alternative, having been out of work since leaving Juventus in the summer of 2019.
Allegri is regarded as one of the finest coaches in world football and was heavily linked with a move to Manchester before they offered the job to Solskjaer.
Look, if the reports are true and United are interested in Allegri, he is a master tactician and it would be amazing to see him in the Premier League, battling with the best managers in the game.
