Massimiliano Allegri is not willing to take his foot off the gas until he retires as he promises to reclaim the Scudetto next season.

Allegri made history by becoming the first manager to win five straight Serie A titles after guiding the Old lady to their eighth consecutive Scudetto with a 2-1 win over Fiorentina on Saturday.

The former Milan gaffer is ranked as the second most successful Coach in Serie A history after Giovanni Trapattoni’s seven.

However, he chose not to reflect on his success stories so far leaving that till his retirement age.

“I haven’t thought about all this yet, maybe I will do in a few years once I’ve retired. Then I’ll look back and perhaps realise I’ve done some good things in my career,” he said in a Press conference via Football Italia.

“I am enjoying myself, criticism is part of the job and add extra motivation. I improved by trying to keep up with the best and I never criticised other people’s work. Everyone has their methods, the important thing is to achieve objectives.

“I don’t have the key to the truth of how football works, I just know that in football I’ve worked with many great Coaches who won a great deal. I tried to learn from them and pay close attention.

“That’s a benefit of my unimpressive playing career, that I had Coaches who taught me a great deal and now that I am a Coach, I am able to look back and re-evaluate some of their decisions.”
