Arsene Wenger has left everyone in the dark over his future but several names have been thrown into the fray as possible replacement for the French manager.
Massimiliano Allegri is being strongly tipped to replace Arsene Wenger as the next manager of Arsenal, but he will have a hurdle to overcome if he does.
The current Juventus boss is the favourite to become the next Emirates supremo with Wenger’s contract due to expire in the summer.
Allegri’s own contract in Turin will expire at the end of the season as well, meaning the timing fits perfectly….
The Italian has remained tight-lipped on his future plans, however when asked about a potential switch to Spain he let slip that learning new languages is not his strong point.
‘I’m learning Spanish? I struggled to learn Italian at school!’ he told reporters, before admitting it took him a while to grasp the local dialect at his current club. ‘I’ve learned Torinese discreetly, so it’s fine now.’
In the past when asked if he is learning English, he cryptically replied: ‘A little…’
If Allegri were to move to the Premier League fans of the Gunners would likely demand he was quick to grasp the English language. Might be easier said than done.
