SEASON 2019-2020 may be an unsatisfactory result for Juventus. Despite successfully winning the 2019-2020 Italian League, Juventus failed to go further in the 2019-2020 Champions League.
These results then did not get a good response from Juventus management. They finally fired Maurizio Sarri and appointed Andrea Pirlo as the new coach. Even though a few days earlier, Pirlo had just been appointed to handle Juventus U-23.
This is clearly a gamble taken by Juventus. Because this is Pirlo’s first job as the main coach. Maybe Juventus have other options. Then if apart from Pirlo, who are the five coaches that can be appointed by Juventus to replace Sarri?
5. Gian Piero Gasperini
Gasperini is probably the most underrated coach in world football today. He started his coaching career with the Juventus youth team. The Italian coach has a lot of experience and what he achieved with Atalanta last season is a testament to his brilliance.
Last season, Atalanta scored the most goals in the Italian League and became one of the top scorers in Europe. Together with Gasperini, they managed to secure a place in the Champions League for two consecutive seasons.
Although Sarri also managed to achieve the same thing, but Gasperini managed to do it in a weaker squad. Therefore, Gasperini actually has a great potential to handle Juventus after Sarri’s tenure.
4. Laurent Blanc
Although Laurent Blanc has not handled the team since 2016, but every top club that has an empty seat, his name is always associated. This clearly shows that the man with the French passport still ranks highly as a coach.
Not only did he win titles with PSG, but his work to change the French national team was also underappreciated. Blanc also led Bordeaux to two consecutive French League titles. This result makes Blanc not to be underestimated.
If he arrives at Juventus, he will have no problem managing the big names either. He is a figure who has experience with training players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
