One of the topics that he spent a lot of time on was Tottenham’s managerial situation, and one of the names who has been linked with the job is Massimiliano Allegri.
However, Gold thinks that Allegri’s lack of English could count against him when compared with other candidates.
He said: “Allegri is still bouncing about obviously, while he’s a free agent, I think he’s always going to be one attractive prospect for Tottenham if they can’t get a person that fits their profile exactly.
“As I said previously, the issue with him probably is the lack of English.”
“Spurs have had issues in the past with managers that didn’t speak English, and it just became an absolute pain. So I can see that counting against him.”
Would you want Spurs to get Allegri?
Yes, he could be the man we need
No, we can do better
TIF Thoughts on Tottenham and Allegri…
However, Gold suggests that because he can’t speak English, that could go against him.
You would also think that if Spurs gave Allegri the job, he would spend time learning English, so if this is the only reason why Tottenham don’t want Allegri, then we are baffled.
