Max Allegri ruled out the possibility of coaching this season amid rumors of his connection to Arsenal.

Allegri also remarked on Pep Guardiola's possession-based football, saying that teams should stop trying to replicate his Barcelona squads.

"We have been falsely following Guardiola for 20 years. Pep found the exception; it is not a football for everyone. That historic Barcelona was born of great players who pressed high and pushed the opposition defences [back] into their area. The midfielders move forward and your defence can reach the middle third. But to do that you must have [Andres] Iniesta, Xavi [Hernandez] and [Lionel] Messi on your team," added Allegri.
