Both Inter and Juventus could realistically decided to make a coaching change within the next few weeks, and should either decide to pull the trigger there are a number of options available to them.
The options are listed in today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who note that Thomas Tuchel and Mauricio Pochettino would be the two most high-profile coaches in Europe currently without club, but that there are quite a few more options as well.
Right now, Simone Inzaghi remains coach at Inter despite their poor early season form, whilst Maz Allegri has also survived the crisis at Juventus, but the sense as that for both coaches a turning point is needed after the international break, or else the coaches’ futures could be at risk.
Should either start their search for a new coach, the sacking of Tuchel from Chelsea a couple weeks ago throws up an obviously high-quality option, and the former Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain coach’s high wage demands could be mitigated by the fact that the tax benefits of the Growth Decree are applicable to his wages.
The same is also true of former Tottenham Hotspur and PSG coach Pochettino, who like Tuchel has never worked in Serie A before and so could have the Growth Decree applied to his salary.
These two are not the only coaches currently available, however, with Claudio Ranieri, Laurent Blanc, and Jorge Sampaoli all big names currently without a club.
Meanwhile, the Gazzetta also name treble-winning former Inter midfielder Dejan Stankovic as a familiar name who could take over at the Nerazzurri, as the Serb has the coaching pedigree after an impressive spell in charge of Red Star Belgrade.
