Maurizio Sarri shrugged off thinking about his future as head coach for Juventus, he claimed he was as courageous as a Formula One racing driver.
When it comes to speculation about his future at the club, Juventus head coach Maurizio Sarri is as brave as a Formula One racing driver.
There has been speculation that even if Sarri guides Juventus to a ninth consecutive Serie A title, he will be sacked at the end of the season.
Ahead of Monday’s clash with fourth-placed Lazio the Bianconeri are six clear points at the top of the table, while Inter could cut that to four with Sunday night’s victory over Roma.
Juve hasn’t played either of their past three games and last month Sarri’s former club Napoli also knocked out of the Coppa Italia.
On Sunday at a media conference, Sarri was asked by reporters if he was tensed about losing his job, he seemed to be in a positive mood (via Gianluca Di Marzio).
In June 2019 the Italian manager took over Juventus and was given a three-year deal.
“I have a contract and I want to honor it at all costs,” said the ex-Chelsea boss.
“Asking me if I am worried about my future is like asking a Formula One driver if he is afraid to go fast. I’m happier feeling someone breathing down my neck.”
