Juventus has finally sacked Andrea Pirlo after an underwhelming campaign at the helm.
Juve had made him their manager after firing Maurizio Sarri, who won Serie A for them and led them to the final of Coppa Italia.
The Bianconeri took an enormous gamble in naming an inexperienced Pirlo to manage one of the biggest teams in the world.
The former midfielder has now proven them wrong after nearly failing to finish the campaign inside the top four.
To his credit, his team won two cups for the club and that would be good for his managerial CV, but failing to beat a team like Benevento over two games shows that he clearly doesn’t have what it takes to lead the Bianconeri.
The club would now look forward to a better few more seasons under Max Allegri after Fabrizio Romano reported that they will reinstate him as the Juventus manager following his sacking two years ago.
The club posted the news of Pirlo’s sacking on the Twitter account and it drew different responses from their fans, here are some:
Never seen a more humane sack statement. If you didn’t know you’d think they are just appreciating his efforts.

Pirlo could be back one day when he has formulated things on the field. until then he is a risk. whether fans agree with Allegrior not, real madrid and merda wanted him too and linked to united for a long time. seems people want to win, not lose 6-5 every game or fail to score against benevento and hasve multiple games whgen there have been literally no shots on goal in the first half. Allegri brings the grinta.
The sacking of Pirlo is the most disappointing part of the whole season! Why take a chance on a new young coach only to make a scape goat out of him after one rough season? I realize this has been a terrible campaign by our usual standard. But Pirlo still took home two trophies and finished equal third on points and one point off second. In any other world for any other team this is easily a pass, especially with all other things considered with regards to covid. Allegri may well of secured more points in the end but I doubt we would of finished above Inter. It was clearly their year. I think we’ve jumped the gun on Pirlo and I would hate to see him end up winning trophies with say, Milan one day
