Juventus has played 34 games out of which they won 25 games, drawn 5 and lost 4. With eight points ahead of Inter and four matches to go, their last five games WDDLW shows decline in performance.
Report from The Sun reveals that Juventus has made contact with Pochettino’s representatives. This implies that the 61-year-old Juventus manager may be on the edge of getting the boot.
Juventus lost to Lyon by a lone goal in the first leg of the Round of 16 of the Champions league game.
Sarri will have to prove that he can bring confidence back to the club as soon as he wraps the Serie A league with a trophy and possibly make a great impact in the remaining matches of the champions league.
Report has it that Mauricio Pochettino refused an offer from French club Monaco who finished 8th in their league.
Juventus’ board see Pochettino as a manager who has the capability and credibility of managing young players. Pochettino led Tottenham to the final of 2018/2019 season of the Champions league.
The former Chelsea boss led the blues to an Europa League success. He replaced Massimiliano Allegri at the beginning of the season in Turin.
Before Monday evening, he has failed to win his last three matches. In June, when Napoli defeated Juventus in penalty shoot out to claim the Coppa Italia he said “Napoli were better at penalty shoot-out”.
The remark did not go down well with Ex-Presdient of Juventus Cobolli Gigli.
“It is unacceptable that Juventus still doesn’t have an identity. By signing (Cristiano) Ronaldo, Juve gave up on team football in favour of focusing on a soloist. Max Allegri managed to make it work, but Sarri hasn’t”, said Cobolli.
He further remarked that “It takes a special coach to deal with star players and Sarri could get them to do what he wanted at Napoli, but he can’t do that with Ronaldo.
If he manages to win Serie A and go all the way in the Champions League, then he can keep his job, otherwise it’s best to part ways as friends now.”
Sarri has been linked with a prediction with Fiorentina who supposedly are monitoring his situation at Juventus.
