Arsene Wenger’s incoming replacement is better than Conte – Mina Rzouki

Arsenal have a had a terrible season in the Premier League with many fans calling for the head of Arsene Wenger already.

However reports claims,

ARSENAL’s potential next manager Max Allegri is “quite a bit better” than Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.

That is according to European football expert Mina Rzouki who has heaped praise on the Juventus coach.

Allegri is the favourite with several bookies to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, with reports last month suggesting the Gunners are in advanced talks with the Italian.

The 49-year-old has won Serie A both seasons he’s been at Juventus and the Old Lady are in a great position to win it again this year.

Rzouki has confirmed Juve are looking at alternatives to replace Allegri at the end of the season.

“There is a lot of talk of Juventus identifying alternatives, that includes Paulo Sousa from Fiorentina,” she told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“He is an ex-player and they like the way that he trains and the way he appeals to their players.

“I don’t know if he’s on the same level as Allegri or Conte but the fact they are sounding out alternatives could be something to be listened to.”

Allegri replaced Conte as Juventus boss in 2014 and despite the Chelsea boss’ early success in England, Rzouki believes Allegri is a better tactician than his predecessor.

She added: “When it comes to Allegri, believe me when I say this, for me there is no better tactician at the moment in Italy than Allegri.

“I would go as far as to say he is quite a bit better than Antonio Conte.

“I know right now Antonio Conte is doing exceptional stuff at Chelsea. Of course when he was at Juventus he did exceptional stuff (too).”

Rzouki remains a fan of Conte but says he does have negatives which Chelsea’s players may not have suffered from yet.

“He’s great at motivating the team, he’s great at creating a unit,” she said.

“The best thing about Conte is that he knows how to master the deficiencies within a squad.

“Whether that’s a poor defence or lack of attacking verve, he knows how to master that by creating a unit where everyone spreads the duties. That is what he’s done with Chelsea.

“But the problem is he sometimes micro-managers them which can get a little exhausting because he’s on the sidelines trying to tweak everything.”
