Italian Serie A side Juventus are set to make huge decision over future of their manager Andrea Pirlo after the club suffered a relatively poor season.

The Old Lady were condemned to a 3-0 defeat at the Allianz Stadium by AC Milan as their race to finish in the Champions League position suffers a major setback.

A goal each from Brahim Diaz, Ante Rebic, and Fikayo Tomori handed the visitors their first win over the Old Lady in Turin since March 2011.

The defeat has now seen Juve drop to the fifth position on the table with 69 points from 35 points while they face Sassuolo, Inter Milan, and Bologna in their remaining fixture.

The result leaves them in the Europa League spot and this is generating concerns at the club that manager Andrea Pirlo might be asked to leave.

However, latest information from Italy suggests that the tactician will remain at the club until, at least, the end of this season.

Since their surprise 1-0 loss to Atalanta, the gaffer must be starting to sense the sharks circling

Now, many in Turin would probably have anticipated a slight dip in the team's performances in yet another transitional year under a new coach, and for once, winning the scudetto would have been a bonus rather than a requirement.

Napoli knew victory will take them above Juventus and AC Milan into second position and they made their intentions clear right from the first blast of the whistle.
