Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri could face the sack if his side lose to title rivals Inter Milan this weekend, according to La Repubblica.
The former Chelsea boss once again launched an extraordinary attack on his players after their defeat to Lyon in the Champions League this week.
And should Juventus’ problems continue, the hierarchy could make a sensational exemption and bring back former boss Massimiliano Allegri, but the club’s philosophy could prevent him from taking over.
Sarri’s words after their shock defeat in France surprised senior figures Fabio Paratici, Pavel Nedved and Andrea Agnelli – and there is a great fear of what the rest of the season may bring.
Latest reports from Italy claim the Juventus squad are struggling to understand Sarri’s ‘vague, confused and unassimilated’ instructions.
