Former England manager Fabio Capello believes that Massimiliano Allegri would fit in well with Manchester United due to the Premier League’s ability to “enrich” coaches.
Allegri has been out of work since leaving Juventus in the summer and has been heavily linked with the Red Devils, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continuing to face pressure over his future following a poor start to the campaign.
The German giants, Bayern Munich, are looking for a new manager after sacking Niko Kovac following a humiliating 5-1 Bundesliga defeat at Frankfurt at the weekend. And it is thought the club's hierarchy are keen on former Juventus boss Allegri, who is currently on a sabbatical after leaving Turin at the end of last season.
Capello has advised his compatriot to wait it out for an opportunity in Manchester.
“He’d be a good fit at Bayern Munich, although I don’t know how welcome Italians are in Germany after Ancelotti,” he is quoted as saying by Football Italia.
“England’s exciting, there’s the possibility of working well and the Premier League is a championship that enriches you.
“If I was Allegri, I’d go to Manchester.”
United are currently placed 10th in the Premier League table after picking up just 13 points from 11 games - with only one win in their last five games. Ralf Rangnick is thought to be the frontrunner for the Bayern job, though he is under contract as the head of sport and development at Red Bull.
