Montella Admits Juventus Job is Tempting

AC Milan coach Vincenzo Montella has surprisingly claimed that he could be in charge of Juventus one day. The 42-year-old was appointed as the coach of Milan only in the summer.

Even though the campaign has been mixed with bouts of excellent form followed by poor spells, there is a general consensus that Montella has been the best manager for Milan in the last few years. The club have gone to several managers in the last decade.

Massimiliano Allegri is the last AC Milan manager to have won the league title, while most of the current generation managers try to match the achievements of Carlo Ancelotti, who won league and the Champions League with the club during the early part of the 21st century. Montella is as getting the team close as they have been in a while, with fans getting more excited and heading back to the San Siro in their thousands - with growing demand for tickets reported by this website.

Surprisingly, though, Montella has claimed that he would consider the possibility of joining Juventus in the future. Milan would be taking on Juventus in the next league match hoping to shake up the Italian Serie A title race.

However, Juventus manager Allegri has been linked with the job at Arsenal in the summer, should Arsene Wenger leave the club. Even though Allegri has so far dismissed the rumours, there has never been smoke without fire.

Montella has a contract with Milan until the summer of 2018, but he is expected to be given a new deal by the club’s new owners. "A professional doesn't rule out anything at the start of their career, so why not? When I was 17 there was talk of interest from Juventus, I was young and promising. Then I got injured and the interest was never firmed up. Maybe coaching Lazio would be more complicated given that in Rome I have a house in the other part of the city!" said Montella, who is widely known for his time at Roma when he was a player.
