Marco Negri thinks that Massimiliano Allegri would be the right man to take charge at Inter, with the stuttering in so far this term despite their current position of second in the table.

Antonio Conte has delivered mixed results at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza this season, and the former Italian football is of the opinion that Allegri could successfully succeed the current boss, just as he did at previously.

“I hope to see him back very soon at a club or at another big club,” Negri told The Italian Football Podcast. “I think could be the right team for him.

“He is someone who is pragmatic and doesn’t have just one way of playing. He is not so tactical, like Pep Guardiola, but he’s focused on creating a winning mentality. Like a [Fabio] Capello or [Jose] Mourinho.”

Despite Juventus’ struggles and Negri’s awareness of there being a number of contenders this season, he still backs La Vecchia Signora to claim another Scudetto come the season’s end.

“I think this year the is more about top players than teams,” he added. “I mean, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is carrying AC Milan, is carrying Juventus, is carrying Inter.

“Zlatan is so important for AC Milan so now that he is out I want to see if the rest of the players can win without him. The most important thing will be these kinds of players. If they can stay healthy, they can carry their teams to the top until the end.

are still my favorite. Like I said before, if you have the winning mentality this can make the difference. Juventus are playing every season to win the Scudetto. They will be there in the end at the top.”
