The 53-year-old Italian specialist has been unemployed since May 2019. Allegri talks about the progress and peculiarities of English football.
Former head coach of Milan and Turin Juventus Massimiliano Allegri, who has a break in his coaching career, has expressed a desire to work in the English Championship. Allegri spoke about the reasons for the progress of the Premier League.
“Of course, I want to test myself in the English Premier League. I spent four years in Italy in Milan, five in Juventus. I expect to be employed in Italy again. But I think it is difficult. I might find myself in England as well.
English football is on the rise today as many foreign specialists work there. The tactics are more than they were ten years ago, though, at the same time, they also respect the traditions of local football. This is a good balance between the spirit of English football and the tactical approaches of foreign coaches. The main thing is that every country has its own history. England is different from Italy, Spain, Germany, and it is difficult to change that.
Liverpool are getting better from year to year. The team has very fast, technical, physically strong players who, which is also important, have character.
Mourinho Tottenham maintains a balance between pragmatism and technique. Tottenham is a great team with stellar players, and Jose – strategy. The coach must value the dignity of his players. Mourinho understands his players and leads them brilliantly.
Manchester City does not have such a great history as United. “Because of this, Guardiola can work from a clean slate and act as he pleases,” said Allegri.
