AC Milan Surprises Fans by Turning to Allegri

Italian channel Rai Sport reports that AC Milan is in contact with Massimiliano Allegri for their vacant managerial position, despite previous indications pointing towards Paulo Fonseca.

Italian channel Rai Sport has revealed that AC Milan has reached out to renowned manager Massimiliano Allegri for their vacant managerial position.

Allegri was dismissed from Juventus in May, less than 48 hours after the team won the Coppa Italia.

The 56-year-old had strained relations with Juventus management due to public disputes with referees, disagreements with sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli, and even a confrontation with Guido Vaciago, a sports editor at Tuttosport.

According to Rai Sport, AC Milan has joined Lazio in contacting Allegri to discuss the possibility of hiring him.

The Livorno native is no stranger to the San Siro, having previously coached AC Milan between 2010 and 2014, winning two Serie A titles and the Italian Super Cup.

Recent indications suggested that AC Milan was close to appointing Paulo Fonseca as their new manager, especially since the Portuguese coach had already left Lille.

However, Allegri could now be the surprise replacement for Stefano Pioli at the club.
