Report: Allegri meets Roma owners

Reports in Italy suggest that Max Allegri met with Dan and Ryan Friedkin, so he’d be the favourite to take over if Paulo Fonseca were to be fired.

According to Radio Radio, the former Milan and Juventus coach had a personal get-together with the club’s new owners this week.

He had previously been reticent on the idea of joining the Giallorossi, but seems to be more open to the idea now.

Allegri has won the Scudetto at both Milan and Juve, taking the title five times in a row in Turin before he was fired.

Fonseca: 'Not satisfied with Roma result'

Paulo Fonseca was ‘not satisfied with the result, but Roma had a good game’ in their 2-2 draw with 10-man Juventus and explained his lack of changes.

The Giallorossi had twice taken the lead through Jordan Veretout and wasted the chances to put themselves beyond reach, especially with Edin Dzeko hitting the post and Adrien Rabiot’s red card.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo’s towering header secured a 2-2 draw for Juve at the Stadio Olimpico.
