Allegri dismisses Barca speculation

Juventus Coach Massimiliano Allegri has rejected rumours he could be leaving the Italian champions to join Barcelona.

The 49-year-old was asked how strong his Spanish and English was amid rumours he could be moving to the Camp Nou or even be Arsene Wenger’s long-term replacement at Arsenal.

"I’m learning Spanish? I struggled enough with Italian at school," Allegri laughed in his pre-match press conference ahead of Juve’s Coppa Italia match with Napoli.

"But I can tell you that I've got a pretty good grasp of the Turin dialect, which is the main thing."
