5 coaches that should be appointed by Juventus to replace Maurizio Sarri: ok ball

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.

3. Leonardo Jardim

Jardim has not been given enough recognition for the work he is doing at AS Monaco. He could actually be a good choice for Juventus. He managed to win the French League with young players like Kylian Mbappe and Thomas Lemar when PSG dominated the French top flight.

Even that same season, he guided the club all the way to the semifinals of the Champions League. This clearly shows that if he’s given a good set of players to work with, he can do wonders.

Juventus currently has some very good players with quality and experience. If, he is able to lead a young team like Monaco in 2017-2018, then he can achieve more with Juventus.

2. Mauricio Pochettino

Pochettino’s name became famous when he coached Tottenham Hotspur. He led The Lilywhites to the Champions League final and also helped them to compete for the Premier League title.

Under his tutelage, Tottenham played a high-pressure game and dominated possession. However, due to a lack of resources at the club, he never actually managed to win a trophy.

Pochettino was fired by Tottenham last year. Since then, he has not worked. However, the former Southamton coach has good experience managing the team in the Champions League, therefore, he is actually a strong candidate for the Juventus job.

1. Erik ten Hag

Erik ten Hag is remembered for leading the Ajax youth team to the semifinals of the Champions League in 2019. In the process, they managed to get rid of two European giants at Real Madrid and Juventus. This made Ten Hag’s performance admired by many fans around the world.

The Ajax youth team from the Netherlands played stunning attacking football and dominated their opponents. Not only that, Ten Hag managed to achieve this feat with young players such as Frenkie de Jong, Matthijs de Ligt, David Nerres, and Donny van de Beek.

Although Ten Hag is known for his loyalty to Ajax, his name counts. Juventus should be able to convince Ten Hag to part with Ajax and offer an interesting project in Turin.
