Tottenham linked with Allegri
Tottenham Hotspur could appoint former Milan Coach Max Allegri as the successor to Tim Sherwood, ESPN has reported.
It has been claimed in Italy by Corriere dello Sport that Allegri, who left San Siro in January, has already reached a verbal agreement with Tottenham to take the whole. Allegri is said to have been having English lessons, as well as spending time in London to get used to the city.
Mauro Tassotti, Allegri’s assistant at Milan and a former Milan and Italy right-back, would follow Allegri to White Hart Lane. He currently assists Allegri’s replacement, former Netherlands midfielder Clarence Seedorf.
Tottenham’s director of football Franco Baldini is reported to be the man behind the mooted appointment, having wanted to hire Allegri for Roma before switching to Spurs. Roma instead named Rudi Garcia as Coach and second in the table, behind runaway leaders Juventus.
Allegri won the title in his first season at Milan, having previously been in charge of Cagliari. But he left Milan with the club off the pace, having already confirmed he would depart at the end of the season.
Netherlands Coach Louis van Gaal has also been linked with the position with it already confirmed he will leave his role with the Dutch national team after the summer’s World Cup.
