Inter Milan manager odds: Massimiliano Allegri down to EVENS

Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri controversial favourite for next Inter Milan manager

Even though February started with Antonio Conte as favourite for next Inter Milan manager, there’s been a more bizarre alternative linked with the club in the form of Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri.

It sounds extremely unlikely to imagine Max Allegri leaving his position at the strongest Serie A side in order to join one that’s a mere shadow of the outfit it used to be, but reported issues between the manager and the club’s officials have made his role far harder to continue in.

A club as massive as Internazionale are always likely to be provided with odds regarding their next manager, and there was a clear change over the space of twenty-four hours at the start of March, as a 10/1 price on Betfair for Massimiliano Allegri to become Inter Milan manager was cut to EVENS, leaving a lot of questions over whether his days are numbered in Turin.

Reports in Italy claiming Allegri could go regardless of Juve’s result against Atleti

The pricing could be seen as hasty to a lot of football fans who are unaware of what’s going on behind the scenes at Juventus Football Club, as the problems are clearly damaging enough to change the situation of Massimiliano Allegri, who could be out of a job even if his side is unable to overturn the deficit in their Champions League Round of 16 second leg with Atletico Madrid.

Italian football correspondent for ESPN Paulo Baldini has only unnerved fans of The Oldy Lady even more regarding the future of Max Allegri. Speaking on what could happen after Juve’s second leg with Atletico Madrid, he said: “It’s certainly an interesting night to see how it pans out afterwards; there’s certainly tension there at the moment.

“Allegri challenged the board and said ‘look, if you don’t want me here then I can go!’. His mentor went out and had a conversation with the press, where he said that Allegri will be going at the end of the season whatever happens.”

Despite going as far as saying that Massimiliano Allegri could be leaving at the end of the current season even if the club manage to win every piece of silverware up for grabs, Baldini has indicated that the Juventus board will be respectful to the former AC Milan boss.

He concluded: “I don’t think we’re likely to witness a situation like Roma where Juventus lose, Allegri gets sacked the next day, and that’s it. I think it’s more likely that a decision will be made one way or the other at the end of the season.”

Cristiano Ronaldo Juventus

Massimiliano Allegri has continued the work left to him by Antonio Conte, winning four Serie A titles and resulting as Champions League runner-up twice. The arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo has only made his side stronger.

Pep Guardiola heavily linked as next Juventus manager

Fans of Manchester City were given a good reason to be concerned last week as Pep Guardiola was closely linked to the Juventus job. These rumours emerged immediately after we heard reports of Max Allegri being in a precarious situation in Turin.

As things stand, the latest next permanent Juventus manager odds price Pep Guardiola as short as 2/1 on SkyBet, making him the favourite to take on the role this summer. He’s followed by former Juventus manager Antonio Conte, who’s priced at 4/1, and Jose Mourinho, who’s given odds of 9/1.

Going beyond 10/1, another seventeen names are mentioned, with more convincing options being Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone at 10/1, former Paris Saint Germain manager Laurent Blanc at 11/2, experienced Serie A coach Carlo Ancelotti at 12/1, and Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino at 16/1.
