Italian journalist Francesco Repice has backed Tottenham to make a move for Massimilano Allegri. 

The 53-year-old. who lead Juve to one of the most dominant spells in the club’s history has been out of work since parting ways with the Old Lady back in 2019.

The Italian is reportedly one of the names on Spurs’ radar to replace Jose Mourinho and it has been claimed that Allegri is open to taking over at Tottenham, with his representatives having sounded out his interest to the club.

The Daily Mail claimed on Sunday that Daniel Levy is set to favour experience over youthful potential in his managerial search and that Allegri was more likely to get the job than the likes of Graham Potter and Scott Parker.

Repice is certainly in no doubt that the former Juventus boss would rank fairly highly on Tottenham’s managerial shortlist, with the journalist claiming that the former AC Milan boss would be a no-brainer for any top club.

He told Juventus News 24: “Any sensible club would bet on him (Allegri).

“Watch out for Tottenham, both for him and for Sarri.

“But a big club that wants to revive the team has only one name that can be used: Massimiliano Allegri.”

Spurs Web Opinion 

Neither Allegri or Sarri would be particularly inspiring choices but between the two, I would rather see Spurs go for Sarri. Allegri would not represent a significant change of direction from Jose Mourinho and despite his impressive CV, he would be a risky choice due to his lack of experience in the Premier League. 

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Who, that is available, has much experience in the PL? I always disliked seeing Sarri on the touchline was a dog-end in his mouth. Disgusting. He wasn’t that successful in the PL anyway. I don’t know much about Allegri.
