Chiellini: 'Can't compare Pirlo to Sarri'

Captain Giorgio Chiellini stressed the Juventus players ‘did our best’ to perform under Maurizio Sarri and doesn’t think it’s right to compare Andrea Pirlo to the former coach.

Sarri lost his job after the Old Lady were eliminated from the Champions League this month and Juve have since appointed an inexperienced Pirlo as the new head coach at the Allianz Stadium.

However, the Bianconeri picked up their ninths consecutive Scudetto and Chiellini said he has ‘a lot of respect’ for Sarri, who ‘is a real person’.

Conte chasing Cup shadow

Antonio Conte has traditionally struggled in Cup competitions, so Richard Hall hopes he can break that taboo with Inter in the Europa League.

‘La maledizone della Coppa Italia’ the curse of the Coppa Italia, that is what Gazzetta called it at least. This was the tag line attributed to Antonio Conte when he was bringing consecutive titles to Juventus. It stayed with him, he could not win the Coppa, failed in Europe and eventually, as the story goes, he was replaced with Massimiliano Allegri partly because of this. Mud sticks and despite an FA Cup win in 2017-18 with Chelsea, he continues to be criticised as a man who struggles with the ‘cup format’ competition.
