Recently, Juventus lost to Lyon in the Champions League 2019/20 round 1/8. Consequently, midfielder De Ligt stay 3 months because of right shoulder surgery while manager Maurizio Sarri was fired before the deadline to 2 years. Though won the Serie A championship, but was eliminated early in Cup C1 is not acceptable to Andrea Agnelli president.
Sarri coach sacked after Juventus were eliminated from the Cup C1
Italian press revealed Juventus president never hour like "Pep II" and only agreed to Sarri lead the team after Fabio Paratici technical director and vice president, Pavel Nedvěd convincing. Sarri layoffs, the world press excitedly put candidates on the "hot seat" as Max Allegri, Mauricio Pochettino ... However, the last to be chosen by Andrea Pirlo is making everyone surprised.
Former Italy midfielder who only obtained a professional coach in late July and has just been appointed U23 coach Juventus earlier days. Therefore, to talk about experience, the military situation Pirlo even "like a blank sheet of paper" and not as Zidane taking over Real Madrid (already have experience with Real's youth team).
So what causes led Juventus to risky decision like that? According to Britain's Daily Mail, there are two main reasons. First there is the story of wages. According to the newspaper, the two names are aiming to replace Mauricio Pochettino and Sarri is Zinedine Zidane.
Zidane and Juventus thought Pochettino before Pirlo but abandoned because of salary issues
Juventus have contacted both this strategy but are faced, "nails" entitled wages. Argentine teacher would like to receive about 9 million euros / season while Zidane give figures even higher figure (12 million euros).
Remember, Juventus still have to compensate for about 24 million euros Maurizio Sarri break the contract early for 2 years. This figure may even rise to 30 million euros as the Italian master wanted to "stretch". This seriously affects the salary fund to the already "tense" Juventus. Therefore, choose Pirlo least Turin club help alleviate part of the burden.
Besides, the legendary Italian Andrea Agnelli very credibility president. Juventus boss said Pirlo fit the club's football philosophy. Technical director Fabio Paratici and vice president, Pavel Nedvěd also share the same opinion.
Also, Pirlo can easily stabilize the dressing room with his fame, at least in the initial period. If possible, the former Juventus played Italy midfielder can completely transform into "Zidane II".
