Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri has offended the Italian Post Office, who released a frosty statement in response to his suggestion it’d be work with less pressure.
The controversy arose during a press conference when Sarri was asked about the difficulties of the job in Turin.
“If I’d wanted to avoid pressure and facing tough tests, I’d have applied to work for the Post Office.”
This irritated the Poste Italiane office, who released a statement on their traditional yellow background with blue text.
“With regards to the comment by Maurizio Sarri, ‘If I had wanted to avoid tough tests I’d have worked at the Post Office,’ Poste Italiane invite Mr Sarri to dedicate a few minutes of his precious time to educate himself on the fact the Post Office is the biggest company in the country, that it is chosen by young graduates as one of the most attractive companies to work for, that is recognised among the top 500 companies in the world for quality of working life, that has one of the best performances on the stock exchange in 2019 and is in third place, on the global scale, among Italian companies for image and reputation.
“The tests therefore – contrary to what Mr Sarri maintains – are certainly there for Post Office staff and the company answers to citizens, businesses and public administrations.
“We invite him to view our daily work in person at one of our 15,000 operative offices.”
