With both Manchester United and Tottenham in ‘crisis’ following a series of results ranging from very mediocre to catastrophic, both Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Mauricio Pochettino are under a lot of pressure these days.
While the Norwegian looks like he will be given time at Old Trafford, the same cannot be said for the Argentine in London, as his situation seems to be going from bad to worse by the week.
The 7-2 home loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday night is a black mark on his managerial record, and questions are starting to be raised about his and his players’ motivation going forward.
Should either side pull the trigger and force a change in the dugout, one man’s name will undoubtedly be on their list: Max Allegri.
Leaving Juventus in the summer, the Italian manager has been without a job since, and while there are reports claiming he is learning English in hope of getting a job on this side of the Channel, with Manchester United his alleged preference, he won’t be taking on a new role until the start of the next campaign.
That’s what Corriere dello Sport are reporting on Wednesday, stating Allegri has ‘so many offers’, with United and Tottenham ‘having thought about him’, but ‘there is nothing to be done’ as the 52-year-old will allegedly see out his year off before jumping back into football management.
