Maurizio Sarri could be out of Juventus football club after just one season as reports have it that the club is now shopping for a replacement with ex-Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino on the shortlist, SunSport reports.
The Old Lady survived a late scare before they were finally crowned Serie A champions and reports say the club chiefs are not happy with Sarri’s tactical approach.
Top Italian outlet Tutto Mercato is reporting that the 61-year-old could be fired just after a year if they fail to overturn a 1-0 Champions League deficit to Lyon on Friday night, August 7.
It was gathered that four top managers are already on standby as any of them could be a possible replacement for Sarri at the Allianz stadium.
Mauricio Pochettino is one of the potential managers to take over with reports that he was earlier considered for the position in 2019 but missed out to Sarri after Tottenham's hefty release clause scared the Serie A champions away.
The Argentine is now a free agent and he is eager to return to managerial position and a deal for him is very likely.
The 48-year-old recently turned down a move to Monaco, but is still believed to be plotting his return to management.
Zinedine Zidane is a dream appointment for Juve, particularly given his ties with the club as a player - as well as the allure he would possess in convincing Paul Pogba to return.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo who just won his second Serie A title has reportedly hinted that he will remain at Juventus despite being linked away from the Allianz Arena side.
The 35-year-old has continued to defy age as he has now scored 52 goals in 64 Serie A games since he completed his £88million from Real Madrid to Turin in 2018.
He has been linked several clubs as there are concerns there exists a rift between the Portuguese sensation and manager Maurizio Sarri.
