Spurs legend Allen can see Ancelotti succeeding Sherwood
Allen worked with Spurs boss Tim Sherwood when Harry Redknapp was in charge.
"If I was a betting man I'd have my money on Carlo Ancelotti," Allen told talkSPORT.
"There won't be just the one option, because if was Van Gaal was on their list, that's gone now, his move to Man United looks to be done and he's been very clever with his recent comments.
"I think they'd look at someone like Pochettino too."
