Massimiliano Allegri has promised a role for Manchester United legend Patrice Evra if he succeeds Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford, according to a report.
Solskjaer and United return from the international break under pressure to perform, with the club currently sitting 12th after eight Premier League games.
Sunday’s clash with Liverpool is said to be crucial for the Norwegian’s future in the dugout and various reports have suggested that former Juventus boss Allegri is being lined up as a potential replacement should their current head coach lose his job.
According to the Daily Mail, Allegri wants ex-United full-back Patrice Evra to join him in his backroom staff if he does indeed take over at Old Trafford in the future.
The newspaper says that Evra and Allegri – who won successive Serie A titles while in Turin – have a strong professional relationship that could be continued at a new club.
What’s more, the report says that Evra has often shown a desire to help United return to the summit of English football and that the Frenchman would be a good fit alongside Allegri due to his wealth of knowledge of the Premier League.
