I don't believe Pochettino is a realistic option, too expensive

Juventus don't live in United's happy bubble and the owners won't bankroll them significantly. Covid hit hard

That sacking makes little sense. In his first season with the club he led them to a league title. Good luck to whoever takes over especially if it's Poch whom has never won any trophy.

Led them to league title? Is this a troll?

Guess this means Jorginho will be staying at Chelsea then, as this man’s weird obsession with him is finally on pause now!

Too rigid in his tactical approach and doesn't provide his players with any creative freedom. He reminds me of Van Gaal but perhaps even more stubborn.

Wont =/= cant. Exor is still a money making machine and the Agnelli kid is still in charge. If it gets bad enough they will pump cash in, the club is in their blood. Whether they will match the oil clubs is another question but they can match other legitimate clubs like ours.

Is this likely to lead to any of their players coming available during summer window?

To be honest if I’m Juve Poch is my only target and if you’re Poch you jump at this job. Even Jose could canter to the league title with that team. It’s a no brainer.

Again that's how big clubs operate.. Utd could learn a thing or two from Bayern and Juve.

A Alien invasion.
Juve haven't played decent football for sometime now,so this isn't particularly unique to Sarri.

Juve got tired under Conte,bored under Allegri and ,style wise, confused under Sarri.

Which crowd are you playing to here? Is there a chapter of Sarri FC on the Caf?
tbh I was making fun of neutral fans whenever a club sacks their manager.

I don't do trolling mate. A league title won in his first season which should have been enough keep him on for a 2nd year.

Will next years manager also be sacked if they don't win the CL?

Haven't they all been sacked? Bayern just take managers within their league to weaken opposition teams, not to strengthen their own, they sign players for that.
Surely you have a long list of examples? Their managers in the last 10 years have been Van Gaal, Heynckes, Guardiola, Ancelotti, Heynckes, Kovac and Flick Which of these appointments fit your claim?

A league title that Juve win every year and even that he managed to make it look like a struggle, gathered only 82 points with one point ahead of the second spot and lost 7 matches. Last 5 matches in the league they lost 3.

Last season they won the league with 90 points and 11 points ahead of second spot. The season before it, 95 points. Before it, 91.

Stats wise this is Juve's worst league win in the last few years. The board knew quite well they only won because competitors were trash and imploded as the season went on.

How is Poch too expensive? He is a free agent. He also has a reputation for being good at working with a budget.

Ah ok. For what it's worth, I think it's a bit harsh on Sarri, but it's hard to argue with Juve's track record, at least on the domestic front.

Players not buying into what he wanted...isn't that what happened at Chelsea? When it happens at two top clubs you start to think it is the problem of the coach rather than the team.
It was mentioned early on that some key players didn't want to adopt his "team first" tactics. That's why I believe that managers are tiered, you can be a very good manager for a team that will qualify year in year out for the CL and not be a manager for the likes of Bayern, Juventus, Real Madrid, Liverpool, United or Barcelona. The problem with the aforementioned clubs is that they generally have players that have won more than most coaches and these clubs have too much history which weighs a lot on most managers even when they are good. In order to be successful with these clubs you need to have a certain aura and a lot of gravitas.

Paratici next supposedly. Probably headed to Roma but he's one of the names who were linked with our fabled DoF search.

What did Solskjaer do to land a job at United? If he didn’t play for this club he wouldn’t be here right now.
Solskjaer was given the job on caretaking capacity after a very expensive manager was sacked mid season. Ole had previously managed the reserves at United before returning to Norway.

The run of form as caretaker manager was the best United had seen since the days of Ferguson, the doom and gloom and toxic environment left behind with Jose departure was starting to disappear. Ole was given the job full time with the faith that he would continue to lift the gloom and provide Champions league football for United and in his first full season against the odds especially when you consider where United was in January they finished 3rd. Now not comparing like for Like but the best manager in the PL Klopp arrived in October 2015 and finished that season in 8th his first full season at the club they finished 4th.

Main point is the league title was won in his first full season. I wouldn't be getting too caught up on points totals. One of Uniteds greatest ever teams (1998-99) only got 79 league points.

League title isn't an achievement for Juve. This is their 9th league in a row. They have been winning the league every year since 2011, yes.

Also, this comparison is flawed, I'm comparing this season with the previous 4-5 seasons, not to a random year in history. The realty is every year of the last few ones they were winning the league with +90 points and at least 4 points gab with the second spot. This year they only gathered 82 points and 1 point gab, this shows they're going backward, not forward.

You need to realize we're talking about Serie A not Premier League.

Are we sure there's not something more than football between them, just look odd when you see the player in question.

Considering what he's able to do with a budget, it would be a terrible reason not to hire him. There can be other reasons not want him though.
What he can do with a budget doesn't matter at juventus, since that'd be out of his hands

Sarri should take a year off, and then look for a team who is on the fringe of CL football year in year out, where the pressure isn’t nearly as high as teams like Chelsea or Juve. If he can get a few years of building his squad, and implementing his tactics, then he could surely produce another Napoli.

This was a move Juve had to make though. They can’t mess about when you have 2 more years of Ronaldo. They have some good youth joining the team next season, they need to invest strong whereever else is needed these next 2 summers and push for the CL.

Never once crossed you're mind teams around them have improved ? No ? As take Inter scored 24 more league goals this season as well as winning 4 more matches and losing 5 less than last year, , Lazio have also improved on last year.

Inter and Lazio improved, so what ? They both gathered 81 and 78 points. It has nothing to do with the fact Juve gathered 8 points less than last season, and that this is their first league win since 2015 in which they couldn't get more than 90 points. Couldn't even get past 85.

So yes these teams improved but Juve went backward too. Worse results with worse points tally.

Ignoring the points total, his style of football with Juve has been diabolical. This sacking was inevitable, I am just surprised they did not pull the trigger earlier. Worst Juve manager in recent history.
