Tottenham chief Levy tipped to bring in Massimiliano Allegri as next Spurs boss

Italian commentator and journalist Francesco Repice has urged Daniel Levy to consider Massimo Allegri for the vacant managerial position at Tottenham.

Allegri is a six-time Serie A winner – however, he has been out of work since he left Juventus in 2019.

Soon after Allegri left Juventus, it was reported that the 53-year-old was taking English lessons amidst Manchester United links, and the Italian was keen to manage in England.

Allegri has a CV littered with trophies, and with Tottenham failing to win a major honour in almost 15 years: he could be the perfect man to bring some elusive silverware to White Hart Lane.

“Any sensible club would bet on him,” Repice told Juventus News 24.

“Watch out for Tottenham, both for him and for Sarri, but a big club that wants to revive the team has only one name that can be used: Massimiliano Allegri.”

Tottenham have been without a manager since they sacked Jose Mourinho last month.

Spurs could approach Allegri after their move for RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann collapsed, following the announcement that the German will be taking over at Bayern Munich in the summer.

Ajax's Erik ten Hag was also on Levy shopping list, however, he has recently signed a contract extension with the Dutch side.

Ryan Mason will be in the Spurs dugout for the rest of the season – as caretaker – until Levy appoints Mourinho's permanent successor.
