Juric casts doubt on Verona future

Coach Ivan Juric raised doubts over his Hellas Verona future during a press conference. ‘I don’t know what will happen. I could even take a break.’

The tactician is consistently linked with Napoli and was asked about the deal he supposedly signed with Verona until June 2023.

“That is not the case,” he replied. “We’ve been safe from the threat of relegation for a while, but we haven’t talked about the future.

“I don’t know what will happen or what the plans are. I don’t know, I could even take a break. This last year has been very tough for me and my staff.

“We must always look forward and keep pushing. We haven’t yet discussed the situation.”

Juric has been very vocal in criticising Hellas Verona for their transfer strategy, arguing it’s difficult to build when most of his team is sold or only on loan.

“I think the results of the last two years have been abnormal, considering that logically more investment means better results. We’ve done great things here, and I am not the one to ask if we could do more. It is clear what has to be done. My ideas have always been clear.

“I must say, I feel really let down by your knowledge of football,” Juric told reporters.

“We played a fantastic game against Lazio and you criticised it. I wish you could see our training sessions, the attitude shown by these lads is remarkable for a team that is already safe in mid-table. They could easily be annoyed with me, but instead they ask for more and really want to improve.”
