Simone Inzaghi ‘likely to be new Juve coach’ to replace Allegri

Simone Inzaghi is increasingly likely to be the new Juventus Coach, as multiple sources claim the Lazio tactician has been in talks to replace Max Allegri.

Options including Maurizio Sarri of Chelsea, Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettino of Tottenham Hotspur were mentioned.

Antonio Conte, by all accounts, has agreed terms with Inter and is committed to joining the San Siro side.

However, they are all under contract and reports are circulating that Juve aim to go for a young, Italian tactician who can get them playing a more attacking style of football.

According to Sport Mediaset, La Stampa and now the Corriere dello Sport, Inzaghi has been contacted and told to wait for further information.

He is under contract with Lazio until June 2020, but stated after beating Atalanta 2-0 to win the Coppa Italia this week that he should not be taken for granted.

“It’s right that we enjoy this evening, then there will be time to sit down with (director of sport Igli) Tare and the President to discuss everything.

“We have a good rapport, but some things shouldn’t be taken for granted the way people say.”
