There are some reports of a main reason Andrea Pirlo might get sacked after next Wednesday. His job is on the line with replacements on sight.
Andrea Pirlo’s future appears to depend strictly on what happens next Wednesday between Juventus and Napoli. At the start of the season, there was a postponed crunch match between these two football clubs that eventually got a new date. The global pandemic forced Napoli to almost lose a match in court due to the rules imposed by Serie A. After finally getting their chance to play this game on the pitch, both squads arrive with different realities to this part of the season.
While Napoli is playing fairly offensive football with some good results, Juventus is not going through the best moment. Despite having Cristiano Ronaldo, the main problem appears to be Andrea Pirlo’s presence. As a rookie manager, the former midfielder might be getting sacked if he doesn’t get a good result against the Southern side. Sports Mediaset reported that a defeat will force his head to roll.
Who could replace Pirlo if he leaves?
Andrea Pirlo’s possible replacements are still unclear. However, the recent rumors of the France Football Federation trying to get Zinedine Zidane after the Euros is a revelation. If this happens, Didier Deschamps will have a good chance to get the job at his former club. Other managers who could get a call are Jose Mourinho (if he leaves Spurs), Gian Piero Gasperini, Luciano Spalletti, and Simone Inzaghi.
There are other top managers such as Jurgen Klopp or Pep Guardiola, but Juventus simply can’t afford to hire them. Andrea Pirlo must be extremely nervous about next Wednesday’s Serie A match that will decide his future at the club. What will happen between Juventus and Napoli?
