Renowned football coach Giovanni Galeone has discussed the future of Massimiliano Allegri in a recent interview with Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.
In the interview, Galeone highlighted that “Allegri has always been skilled. Otherwise, he would not have won five consecutive championships with Juventus. The coach is more important than anything else.”
He made his uncertainty known about whether it was Luciano Spalletti’s decision to leave or if he was pushed out by the club president, Aurelio De Laurentiis. Galeone reflected on Spalletti’s unique contributions to the team, stating that any new coach would be averse to mimicking the Spalletti’s game style.
Notably, Galeone underscored the challenges faced in substituting Spalletti with a coach who has spent years away from Italy and has only proven their skills in the French championship. In his opinion, finding a replacement of the calibre of coaches like Pep Guardiola or Jurgen Klopp would not have been viable within the club’s parameters.
Galeone had words of praise for Walter Mazzarri, even though he suggested that Napoli’s team is not suited to his style of football. If Galeone were in Mazzarri’s shoes, he would have stuck to his preferred 3-5-2 formation.
As for Massimiliano Allegri’s future, Galeone is of the belief that the highly sought-after coach will remain with Juventus for at least another year and does not seem interested in switching teams. According to Galeone, Allegri “might enjoy succeeding Spalletti at the national level, but should wait.”
