Not ebery Arsenal fan would put the Italian coach Massimiliano Allegri at the top of their transfer wish list as the club seeks to replace the long serving Artsene Wenger, but his amazing record of success with the serial Serie A champions Juventus and his impressive credentials before that with AC Milan and others suggest that he is one of the best.
According to a Sky Sports report, however, there is another much bigger reason than his record of success for Arsenal fans to get excited about this potential appointment.
It appears that Allegri has something of a midas touch when it comes to dealing with awkward players,. and a way to get the best out of talented but also not the most motivated of stars. Arsenal certainly have more than our fair share of them, but just imagine how good we could be if the likes of Ozil and Wilshere were operating at full potential every week.
Check out the report and the stories of the various ways Allegri has managed to get frustrating enigmas like Mario Balotelli doing the business. Does this make the Juventus boss firm favourite to take over from Wenger? I think it must do.
