Boss responds to reports he’s agreed to replace Wenger at Arsenal
Max Allegri has responded to reports suggesting that he’s agreed a deal to become Arsenal boss if Arsene Wenger walks away this summer.
Pressure is increasing on Wenger to turn down the offer of a new contract following our latest inept performance during Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at Liverpool.
Allegri has emerged as the bookmakers favourite to take over at Arsenal should Arsene end his 21-year reign in north London and the speculation intensified over the weekend.
The Express [via the Metro] reported on Saturday that Allegri has agreed terms with Arsenal following three months of negotiations and is now waiting to see what Wenger decides to do.
The 49-year-old refused to speculate on his future during his pre-match press conference on Saturday, however, Allegri moved to dismiss the rumours that he’d spoken with Arsenal following Juve’s 1-1 draw at Udinese yesterday.
Allegri is quoted as saying by the Metro.
‘The rumours from England are not true. And I’m not the one to decide my future – Juventus will,’
‘And if these rumours were true, Juventus would be the first to know and I haven’t talked to Juventus yet.
‘We’ll talk and we’ll decide. But I haven’t talked to anyone and to any club in England.’
This is the first time Allegri has come out and denied any talks with Arsenal as he’s previously skirted around the issue and fuelled the fire on several occasions.
Who knows what to make of it all but my gut feeling is that talks have been held with the Italian boss and he’s among our targets to replace Wenger is he walks.
Like many fans, I think it’s time for change at Arsenal and I’d love to see Allegri come in as boss this summer as he’s a winner who has the experience and character needed to take over from Wenger.
