AC Milan coach admits he would be interested in Italy job
Current Italy boss Cesare Prandelli is widely expected to leave his position with his contract set to expire after the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, and Allegri has been touted as a possible replacement for the former Fiorentina man.
“I’ve said on numerous occasions that the dream of any coach is to manage your own country, and that’s also the case for me,” he told Sky Sport.
“Right now I’m at Milan and I’m very happy to be the coach here, while there is a great man in charge of Italy.
“But it is a role I aspire to, not necessarily now, maybe in 10 years, but it is only normal that I am targeting such a role.”
Allegri, who led the Rossoneri to the Scudetto in his first season at the club, could be available for the start of the 2014/15 campaign as his contract at San Siro expires next summer.
“I’m happy,” Allegri continued.
“Everyone wanted him and Adriano Galliani completed a great transfer.
“We were missing a player in that role after selling Kevin-Prince Boateng. Kaka will allow us to take a step up in quality thanks to his experience and technique.”
Allegri previously had stints in charge of Cagliari and Sassuolo before taking the reigns of the Diavolo in 2010.
