Tottenham Hotspur: Allegri should be Spurs’ Mourinho replacement

Tottenham Hotspur are now on the lookout for a new manager after shockingly sacking Jose Mourinho on Monday.

The Portuguese ace, who only replaced former boss Mauricio Pochettino in November 2019, has been relieved of his duties after just a year-and-a-half in charge of the club.

Indeed, questions about Mourinho’s replacement at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will already have started but the club’s ideal option has surely got to be former Juventus boss Max Allegri.

Were Spurs right to sack Mourinho?

Absolutely, his time was up.

Absolutely, his time was up.

No, he should have stayed.

No, he should have stayed.

Currently out of work since his respective departure from the Old Lady and linked to Tottenham as recently as March by Tuttosport, the Italian would bring with him an impressive trophy haul.

In his time in Turin, he won six Serie A titles, as well as four Copa Italias. That winning mentality would certainly be a useful asset with the North-Londoners having not claimed a trophy since the 2008 League Cup.

As a matter of fact, his period at Juventus saw him draw plenty of praise from considerable figures in the footballing world, former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson labelling his work as “fantastic”.

Whilst it could well be argued that Allegri would simply not be able to replicate those title challenges in North London, a facet that has actually occurred with the previously decorated Mourinho, his style of play should also work extremely well in North London.

Preferring the 4-3-3 formation according to transfermarkt, this would potentially allow Allegri to implement a similar system at Tottenham.

Who cost more?

A three-pronged attack of Harry Kane, Heung Min-Son and any of Gareth Bale, Erik Lamela or Steven Bergwijn would be extremely tantalising, whilst a midfield triumvirate of Tanguy Ndombele, Moussa Sissoko and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg appears extremely well-balanced.

Boasting a 70% win rate in all competitions during his time at Juventus compared to Mourinho’s rate of 52% in his time at Spurs, it goes with saying that Allegri would be an instant improvement following the Portuguese’s departure so should definitely be considered as a replacement.

The club have been linked with a move for Julian Nagelsmann but they should ignore him and move for Allegri, who has a proven track record of delivering big trophies.

AND in more news, Barry Fry is adamant that Daniel Levy will not allow Harry Kane to follow Mourinho out of the Tottenham exit door…
