As reported by The Daily Star, Chelsea have made Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri their top choice to replace Antonio Conte at the end of the season.
Conte is under significant pressure after a number of poor results in the English Premier League and an exit from European competition, with it looking increasingly unlikely he’ll be in charge of the Blues next season.
Allegri has the trophy winning pedigree to bring success back to Stamford Bridge but it appears that supporters aren’t exactly thrilled at his potential appointment this summer.
Many feel he is too similar to Conte and will put a focus on defensive tactics that they are tired of seeing.
Whenever a new era is about to be embarked on, supporters are idealistic and look for perfection but wouldn’t Allegri be exactly the kind of appointment the Blues need next term?
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on this week’s reports…
What’s the point of sacking Conte to appoint Allegri ??♂️. Extremely similar approaches to football. Allegri is more willing to change formation but their philosophies are the same!

No way he is defensive minded coach

Why another defensive coach? Surely we want to get back to attacking football? It just doesn't make sense to me ?
