Pirlo not afraid of about being Sacked after Porto send Juventus kicking out of Champions League


  Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo has said he's not afraid of the sack despite seeing his team kicked out of the Champions League against 10-man Porto on Tuesday night.


  With the last-16 tie level at 3-3 on aggregate in extra time, Porto's free kick by Sergio Oliveira from long distance went under a crumbling Juventus wall, as the Goalkeeper was only able to palm the low drive into the back of the net.

   A later header from juve player from a Corner kick into the back of Porto's Net by Adrien Rabiot was merely a consolation, as the Portuguese side dazed Juventus to reach the quarter-finals on away goals after a 4-4 aggregate result. 

     Andrea pirlo's Comments

  “I don’t know why Maurizio was Sacked," Andrea Pirlo said after the Match. 

  "I'm the manager of Juve, I was brought in for a more extensive approach, a project that was always meant to change over many years, so I'm not concerned if they'd sack me.

   I'm not happy to be working with a full week, as I would've preferred to stay in the Champions League.

  Currently that we are in this situation, we can work on several aspects in training group, which we've not had time to do so far this Campaign, and try to enhance on those.”

   talking about Porto's free kick, Juventus boss "pirlo" added: “We choose the players to go in the wall.

   Things like that had never happened before that they would turn around, possibly they felt it was so far out that they didn’t smell the danger coming.

   Perhaps, “It was a mistake, it mostly doesn’t occur, the players didn’t feel it was an unsafe situation  and conceded a goal.”

Why was Sarri Sacked by Juventus

   Pirlo is in his first season as Juventus' head coach after his predecessor Sarri was sacked after just a single year in charge.

  Despite winning Serie A, Sarri was removed as Juventus Coach after his side kick out of the Champions League to Lyon in the Champions league round of 16.

   Current juve manager may strive to even replicate Sarri's achievement, with Juve present in third position in Serie A, 10 points behind leaders Inter Milan with a match in hand. Cristiano  Ronaldo and Andrea Pirlo facing uncertain futures after shock Champions league exit.
