Milan’s coaching situation for next season continues to be a hot subject of debate in Italian media. Today the latest reports came, and it’s about Milan having held positive talks with ex-coach Max Allegri.
TuttoMercatoWeb has today reported that Milan’s CEO Ivan Gazidis has in recent days initiated contact with Massimiliano Allegri over a possible return to Milan. Allegri was the manager of Milan between 2010-2014 where he won the Scudetto in the 2010/11 season.
The reports suggest that Gazidis has asked Allegri about the availability over a possible return to the Milan bench. Allegri has not said yes or no, but a lot hinges on a possible return to Champions League. It’s important, however, it’s not fundamental for a possible return. He wants to join the race and fight to be one of Italy’s giants again.
Allegri manages his last games with Juventus tonight against Sampdoria at the Marassi. During his stint as Juventus manager, he’s won five back-to-back Scudetti, four Coppa Italia, two Supercoppa Italiana and been the runner-up in Champions League two times.
