Arsenal fans are going crazy for Massimo Allegri after Juventus produced a stunning display at Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday night, almost producing one of the biggest shocks in the competition’s history.
The Italian has always been one of the favourites for the Arsenal job, should Wenger step down, and was heavily linked towards the end of last season.
Both he and Wenger signed new deals, however, but Allegri stated earlier in the month that when he does leave Juventus, it will be to a league outside of Seri A.
“Certainly I will go abroad,” Allegri told The Telegraph. “In Italy, finished.”
“I could never be a coach who mainly focuses on tactics or analytics because I am more instinctive,” he said.
“The coach, in my opinion, bases his decisions on sensations, on perceptions. Otherwise it would be enough to sit in front of the computer and football would be like a PlayStation. And that is not what I am.
“In football there are a lot of people who try to reach perfection with figures, with tactics but it’s impossible because there are too many variables.”
And Allegri showed his quality once again on Wednesday night as he masterminded a phenomenal Juventus display in Madrid.
