After Juventus Turin secured the last Champions League starting place in Serie A in fourth, coach Andrea Pirlo hopes to be able to continue with the record champions. “I still see myself 100 percent in the Juve coaching bench, but the decision is not mine,” said the 41-year-old DAZN.
Juve missed the Scudetto in the duel against Inter Milan, but can look back on qualifying for the premier class and on the cup win against Robin Gosen’s club Atalanta Bergamo.
“We fought, we were afraid we wouldn’t make it, but at this final stage of the championship we understood which direction we had to go. It was a complicated year but it served me to grow and improve “, emphasized Pirlo, who had taken the helm of the old lady at the beginning of the season as a coach debutant.
Juventus will play in the Champions League again next season for the tenth time in a row. Pirlo hopes that Cristiano Ronaldo will remain, whom he spared at the game in Bologna (4-1). “At 36, it is not easy for Ronaldo to find a club that pays him € 31 million a season,” wrote the Corriere della Sera.
