From Galliani to Galliani: Allegri rischiatutto against his mentor

The CEO brought him to Milan giving impetus to his career: now the Juve coach is playing the future at the home of those who discovered him

If life is a circle, the sporting one of Max Allegri it could close right in front of whoever made it take off. From Galliani in Galliani the step was long and well stretched, colored by several “rossobianconeri” championships, by a couple of Champions (lost) and from an ever-rising parable that led him to be considered one of the best technicians around. The problem is that even at the highest of the climbs, sooner or later, a descent follows and the path of the “cortomusista” does not seem exactly at Everest height. Quite the contrary: his prices are currently very volatile and his popularity is declining.

The fact is that Sunday, in that of Monzato close the circle of Mr. Max’s admirable career could be the very man who launched him into orbit, catching him from Cagliari to lengthen the long list of technical bets won inaugurated by Arrigo Sacchi and continued with the various Fabio Capello or Alberto Zaccheroni. The Allegri of those years was a modern and rising coach, catapulted from the happy island on the threshold of the Duomo without being devoured by Milan to drink who, as a hobby, knew how to burn coaches and players with a cannibal’s voracity for the ball. The Allegri of today is a seasoned technicianperhaps unable to update himself in the two years of purgatory, certainly in trouble as never before. Out of competition, out of fashion, almost out of the game, at least in Europe.

Find again in Monza Adriano Galliani, with which the relationship has remained more than cordial, it could be an opportunity to take another spin on the flying carpet of celebrity or the last stop of a career that his people, the Juventus one, would like to close yesterday, considering today a time already too late. Who is saying that his position at Juve is more than stable, tells a big lie. Because it is one thing to question money that isn’t there and coaches who, in the words of Arrivabene, “you pay?”. It is another thing not to smell the moods of a square or, even more so, of a changing room which in some ways gives the feeling of being discharged by the technician. The “all together” heralded via social media by Juve in the aftermath of the terrible defeat against Benfica in this sense it has more the air of the last stroke to try to stay afloat than of a safe swim. The same goes for what comes from Turin in these hours about Juve’s technical future. Allegri does not take risks, okay, but what if he draws or loses at Monza? And just before the last available stop to shuffle the cards a bit before the sprint towards the World Cup. To put it another way, “if not now, when”? With the Juventus management, or part of it, who is thinking about De Zerbi and the fans clamoring for it Paolo Monteroas if it were enough to graft a piece of stainless and severe Juve to solve all the problems.

In short, the circle of Allegri’s sporting life returns to the parts of Adriano Galliani as if everything were but a question. Nobody knows the answer, but what is certain is that it will be about kicking. To the crisis, to a career or just to a football.
