MANCHESTER (ENGLAND) – Massimiliano Allegri could be the next Manchester United coach. Tottenham also likes it but the Red Devils could be favorites on the London club because they have more money. Allegri has not denied his possible transfer to England and has dismissed the issue with the following joke reported by the Gazzetta dello Sport: "I don't speak English well enough yet, but I'm learning".
Allegri has also drawn up a balance sheet of his experience at Juventus . His words are reported by the Gazzetta dello Sport: "When I arrived in Turin after Antonio Conte, many thought that I was screwed – Allegri explained – and that the winning cycle of Juventus was over, because the team was saturated.
True, the situation was not perfect, because I found a team that needed to be rebuilt, which was exciting, but also risky, because you could have failed and Juve's failure is not covered.
That's why I had to look for different ways to stimulate the group, I listened and I changed. There are two ways to be a good coach: authoritarian and open. I prefer the latter, so I listen more than I talk: in this way I get more information from the outside, which positively changes my world, because they push me to question my ideas. If I think something is right for one hundred percent, I am worried about it and consult this opinion with those around me ”.
Allegri also talks about two players with strong personalities who trained: Ibra and Mandzukic.
"At Milan Ibra was always inc … because others could not keep up with him – Allegri said again – and for two years I explained to him that the others didn't play like him and Ibra had to understand this thing.
A coach must know how to use a player for what he can offer and this is why Mandzukic is so special to me, he is a great player and he gave me an incredible amount of room to maneuver. In the past he has often changed teams, but now he is in his fifth season at Juventus and this is one of my biggest successes. "
The Allegri article opens at Manchester United: "I'm learning English …" seems to be the first on daily Blitz .
