Andrea Pirlo is living complicated days at the helm of Juventus, because in the last two Serie A dates he only rescued one point: he lost to Benevento and drew against Torino, a situation that has him in fourth place with 56 points and nothing to be left out of the next UEFA Champions League.
For the same reason, this Wednesday’s game against Napoli has an extra seasoning, because Both clubs share positions and the winner will gain an important advantage in grabbing the fourth place in the Champions League.
Faced with that panorama, Tuttosport reported that Pirlo’s departure is a reality, despite the fact that the managers have defended it publicly. The elimination in the round of 16 against Porto was unexpected and caused an internal stir that was difficult to cope with.
Added to this, reaching a new Scudetto is increasingly distant, as Alexis Sánchez and Arturo Vidal’s Inter Milan is solid in the leadership with 68 points and one game less.
For the same reason, several Italian media have reported that the duel against Napoli may mark the future of Pirlo in the technical bench of Vecchia Signora. They have even stated that his replacement is ready: Massimiliano Allegri.
Allegri was at the club during the 2014-2019 seasons, leading 267 games with 189 wins, 42 draws and 36 losses. In addition, he added 11 national titles. His only problem was that he couldn’t win the Champions League and that’s why he left the club. The only thing that is clear is that weeks of decisions are coming within Juventus.
