Allegri: ‘I’m staying at Juventus until they kick me out’

Allegri has been touted as a potential replacement for Arsene Wenger at Arsenal should the Frenchman decide not to renew his contract at the London club, having won the Scudetto twice in consecutive years since succeeding Antonio Conte in 2014, but the former AC Milan coach is adamant there is no imminent move planned.

“I am studying English, but I have been for many years,” Allegri told Sky Sport Italia.

“It’s incredible, the very day I arrived in London with my daughter, I walked through the airport and saw a giant picture of me on the newspaper saying I was meant to be joining Arsenal. ‘Damn it’, I said, ‘today this had to happen?’

“I am very happy at Juventus and until they kick me out, I’m content to stay.”

Juventus reached the final of the Champions League in Allegri’s first season at the helm, losing 3-1 to Barcelona in Berlin and while the 49 year-old confirmed that securing a sixth successive league title is his priority, he remains hopeful about the club’s European ambitions.

“Our primary objective is the Scudetto and it is absolutely not easy, because Roma are pushing, so are Napoli, and we need at least 85 points to be sure of the title,” he said.

“The Champions League is a very different type of tournament where one incident can make all the difference. 

“Over a league season, these things even themselves out, whereas in Europe you’ve got one chance.”
