Fabrizio Romano, a prominent reporter for Sky Sports has revealed that Massimiliano Allegri confirmed he will be at Juventus next season, Ending many Arsenal fans’ hopes that the club would bring the veteran manager in.
In his tweet, Romano wrote that Allegri stated “I’ll be at Juventus next year, if they don’t sack me…” he also added that it is highly unlikely Juventus will let him go given his success in winning the domestic double of the Coppa Italia and the Serie A title four times in a row, being the only manager to do this.
Recently the two favourites for the Arsenal manager job have been Max Allegri and Mikel Arteta. Arteta is now looking most likely to take the job even knowing he has had no managerial experience and only a highly commended time as a coach at MAnchester City.
When Arsene Wenger announced his exit, the 36 year old Spaniard was seen as a wildcard, but now Mikel Arteta leading the North London club looks very possible and could be announced in the coming weeks.
Several other managers have been tipped off to be the new manager, including Julian Nagelsmann, the young boss currently managing Hoffenheim and Patrick Vieria.
At 30 years of age, Julian Nagelsmann is incredibly young by managerial standards. The youngest manager in the Bundesliga has also been shown to be one of the most talented, leading lowly 1899 Hoffenheim from 15th when he joined in 2016 to 3rd in the 2017/18 season.
Patrick Viera played under Arsene Wenger and played in the great Invincibles squad. He has since been a development coach at Manchester City and then has gone on to become the head coach at New York City FC with whom he has led from being 17th in 2015 to being 4th in 2016 in Vieria’s first season and 2nd in 2017.
Previously there were many reports linking Luis Enrique to the Arsenal but the chances of the Barcelona manage joining the Arsenal is now slim, after reports that the Spanish manager had huge wage demands and would only join if given a vast transfer budget.
This being said, no candidate is really off the table at such an uncertain time for Arsenal, so we can only wait to see who takes the job.
