The course of Juventus can be defined as a disaster that worsens week after week. After the humiliating defeat with Benevento, the Juventus they drew two in the derby with Torino fighting for salvation, bordering on another ridiculous one. The tenth scudetto consecutive is already impossible (Inter is 12 points away), and now they even fear for qualifying for the Champions League, something surreal for a team with Ronaldo in their ranks.
On Wednesday, against Naples, Juve will practically live a tiebreaker for the European Cup, and the consequences of a defeat would be unpredictable. Yesterday ‘Tuttosport’ warned that, falling with the southerners, Pirlo’s dismissal would be a reality despite the fact that the directors, publicly, continue to defend him.
In the bedroom, the entity of Turin has the return of Allegri that, as revealed by ‘Il Giornale’, he has attended Saturday’s game with President Agnelli, with whom he has a friendship that goes beyond the professional.
Several Italian media affirmed that the coach would immediately accept a call from his ex-club, something that would not be very funny to Cristiano. The ex-Madridista complained about the team’s overly defensive style with the Italian (“Now we are more offensive,” he said after Sarri’s arrival), but the truth is that Pirlo is not happy either. And, if it were up to him, he would return to Madrid tomorrow.
Meanwhile, the team seeks cuts due to the economic crisis. As AS published yesterday, despite its great performance Juve is considering returning Morata to Atleti, since right now it is impossible to spend so much 45 million for the purchase option, like paying 10 ‘kilos’ to renew the assignment for another course. It will be months of revolution in Continassa. And much will depend on what happens on Wednesday.
