Marchisio: Klopp perfect replacement for Allegri
Jurgen Klopp is the perfect replacement for Juventus’ Massimiliano Allegri, says former midfielder Claudio Marchisio.
Allegri has been rumoured to be on his way out of the club in the summer and Marchisio believes his former side should target the Liverpool boss. Allegri however, hinted he will be staying at the club next season after pointing out he has a year remaining on his contract. Marchisio is aware it will be hard for the Italian giants to land Klopp but believes the German manager ‘would do very well in Italian football’.
“One that I believe cannot be had: Jurgen Klopp,” Marchisio told Tuttosport when asked who he thought should replace Allegri.
“I like his game and I like his way of playing football until the death. He would do very well in Italian football. But, if Allegri remains, I wouldn’t see anything wrong with that, because he’s a coach who always wins,” he added.
Marchisio played for Juventus for 13 seasons before leaving for Zenit St. Petersburg last summer.
