Former England manager Fabio Capello has said 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 job, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continuing to face pressure over his future following a poor start to the campaign.
Recent reports have also linked Allegri to German champions Bayern Munich after they parted ways with Niko Kovac, but speaking on Italian radio station Radio Anch’io Sport (via Football Italia) Capello urged his compatriot to head to England if the chance arose.
“He’d be a good fit at Bayern Munich, although I don’t know how welcome Italians are in Germany after [Carlo] Ancelotti,” the 73-year-old said.
“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].”
Allegri left Juve after picking up his fifth successive Serie A title and the current squad – led by former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri – sit top of the league after 11 games, one point ahead of Inter Milan.
