Tuttosport names five possible Allegri replacements for Juventus

October 12, 2022 - 5:00 pm

In a parallel universe, Juventus would have sacked Max Allegri a long time age. Yet, the tactician remains in charge of the club despite being on a free fall.

However, one would imagine that at some point, the management will eventually decide to wield the axe.

According to Tuttosport via ilBianconero, the Derby della Mole on Saturday could decide Allegri’s fate, as a defeat could spell the end of his disastrous second tenure at the club.

The source also names five managers who could be candidates for the black and white dugout.

The first is Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine found success in England with Southampton and Tottenham, but he parted ways with PSG last summer after failing to lead the side towards European glory.

The second name on the list is Thomas Tuchel who has recently left Chelsea following a poor start to the campaign. The German had lifted the Champions League trophy with the Blues in 2021.

Then we have the vastly experienced Rafael Benitez who had spells at Liverpool, Inter, Chelsea, Napoli and Real Madrid amongst others.

Former Italy manager Cesare Prandelli is also on the list. He remains untied after ending a second spell at Fiorentina in 2021.

Finally, the source also mentions former Sassuolo and Roma boss Eusebio De Francesco. The Italian’s career has been on a downhill since leading the Giallorossi towards a historic Champions League Semi Final in 2018. He has been sacked in the middle of the season four years in a row.

      You don’t have to hire any of these guys now. This season is toss up anyway. The longer they wait and even worse it will get. Just get a interim coach for the rest of season. Take rest of sessions to try to think of the best alternative.

    Best is the hire the Primavera coach as first team interm, and evaluate at the end of the year. Least costly and least risky. And the coach bleeds for the club. At the very least, Juventus will find their will to win with him.

    Igor Tudor would be an interesting option, sure he’s inexperienced but he’s doing pretty well over at OM.

    Poch is not a top coach. He does not have the mentality of a winner. And taking onto account what the spirit is like inside the Juve dreasing room, he moght do worse than Allegri. Tuchel would be a win win situation. Second choice of mine is Prandelli. Di Francesco and Benitez are not a wise choice

    None of the above thanks. Juve should do whatever they can to get Zidane.
