Odds on Massimiliano Allegri replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer shorten amid Manchester United turmoil



With Manchester United enduring a terrible time in recent weeks under current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær, rumours have been circulating about possible replacements.

Former Juventus and AC Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri is said to be one of the favourites to take over if the Norwegian coach is axed from Old Trafford.

However, the illustrious Italian coach is reportedly only willing to take over if Ed Woodward and the United hierarchy offer him the job in the next few weeks. This ramps up the pressure on Solskjær to get his side performing and getting much better performances. spokesman Callum Dunn commented that Solsjaer’s time is coming to an end in the United hotseat:

Having only won two Premier League games so far, it is easy to see why the former United striker is under huge pressure. The 46-year-old replaced Jose Mourinho midway through last season as a caretaker manager. He did a sterling job where he masterminded a famous Champions League comeback against PSG. However, ever since securing the job on a permanent basis, United’s performances and form have dwindled to a level unseen at the club for a long time..

Therefore, managers such as Allegri and Mauricio Pochettino have been long rumoured for the coveted job.

9/4 Mauricio Pochettino

6/1 Massimiliano Allegri

15/2 Brendan Rodgers

9/1 Laurent Blanc

14/1 Erik ten Hag

14/1 Julian Nagelsmann

20/1 Arsene Wenger

20/1 Michael Carrick

Allegri has been out of a job since the end of last season where he left Juventus after having a superb time in Turin.

He was appointed by the Italian giants in the 2014-15 season having impressed in his tenure as the AC Milan manager where he managed to lift the Scudetto with a team that included the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Alexandre Pato and Thiago Silva.

Giuseppe Marotta and the rest of the Old Lady hierarchy were hoping that Allegri could help carry the torch that his predecessor, Antonio Conte, left behind.

The 52-year-old did more than just carry the torch for Juventus. He managed to lift five Scudetto’s in a row and managed to bring Juventus to the brink of European glory twice.

However, his side fell short against Spanish and European powerhouses Barcelona and Real Madrid in 2015 and 2017 respectively.

His incredible pedigree at the highest level will make him a great fit for a club of Manchester United’s stature. Allegri is, however, not the favourite for the job as his football is based on pragmatism – something the Red Devils’ fans are tired of.

Current Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has been the heavy favourite to take over the United job for a long time. The Argentinian, who himself is going through an extremely tough period, plays some great football and has experience of rebuilding a club.

His Spurs side have been a consistent top performer and even managed to surprise the footballing world as they reached the final of last season’s Champions League.

Unfortunately, just like Allegri, he fell short off the mark and currently has no trophies to showcase the brilliant work that he has done for the North London side.

Managers such as Brendan Rodgers, Erik ten Hag and Julian Nagelsmann are perhaps not ready yet to take on a job of this magnitude leaving Allegri and Pochettino to fight it out against Solskjær.

Time is running out for the United legend and he will be hoping that Ed Woodward still has a little bit of faith in him – enough to not hand Allegri the job.
