GdS: Milan to offer Allegri role similar to Man Utd legend as rumours of return grow

By Oliver Fisher -

Reflections are currently taking place at Casa Milan regarding the future of the Rossoneri at management level, according to a report.

Friday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport – as cited by – claims that Milan’s leadership is looking beyond January and into the summer, where there will be a new revolution that will start from the bench.

Stefano Pioli will leave the club automatically if a European spot is not achieved, but even then Paolo Maldini and Zvonomir Boban have one name in mind to take his spot: Massimiliano Allegri.

Allegri was of course in charge of the Diavolo from 2010 to 2014 and was the man responsible for capturing the club’s last Scudetto in 2011. Maldini and Boban want to put their trust in a top manager, and they have the idea of giving Allegri a role at Milan like Sir Alex Ferguson had at Manchester United.

In essence they want a long-term coach on the bench that can start a long-term project, for which Allegri has the perfect identikit. The ex-Juve boss is a master of tactical transformism, as well as having already demonstrated in his career that he knows how to use young players.

Before that, though, Milan must stay focused and finish the current season in the best possible way.
