Max Allegri not in running for Arsenal job – Fabrizio Romano

Reliable Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has this afternoon assured that former Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri is not amongst the candidates to replace Unai Emery at Arsenal.

The news that Gunners fans across the globe had been waiting for finally arrived this morning.

A Europa League group stage defeat at the hands of Eintracht Frankfurt last night proved the straw that broke the camel’s back when it came to Unai Emery’s time in charge at the Emirates, as the Spaniard was officially relieved of his duties by the Arsenal hierarchy:

‘We announce today that the decision has been taken to part company with our head coach Unai Emery and his coaching team.’
