Massimiliano Allegri out of the running to replace Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea as former Juventus boss plans year offMassimiliano Allegri will not take another job in management for next seasonThe former Juventus boss has been linked to Chelsea if Maurizio Sarri leavesBut Allegri has announced he will take a year off from football as a sabbatical 

Massimiliano Allegri ruled himself out of the running to replace Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea on Thursday night, announcing he is taking a year off.

Chelsea will not stop Sarri leaving as long as they receive £5million in compensation from Juventus and the Turin club's departing boss had been tipped to take over should that happen.

Erik ten Hag is not expected to leave Ajax, leaving Derby boss Frank Lampard as a leading candidate for the job. 

Massimiliano Allegri has announced he is taking a year off to end talk of him going to Chelsea

Chelsea hoped to attract a more experienced coach, but there is limited appeal at a club who have sold their best player, Eden Hazard, to Real Madrid and are fighting a transfer ban.

On Thursday night Allegri said: 'I am going to take a year off to recharge the batteries and take my personal life back in hand, rediscover after many years the affection of my family, children and friends.

'The last 16 years have felt like being in a blender. You have to take time away from what you usually spend with family and friends.

'I'll use this year to recharge my batteries ahead of the next season.'

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has emerged as the frontrunner if Sarri does leave this summer
