Pirlo used 34 line-ups in 34 games

Juventus have failed to find an identity under Andrea Pirlo and that’s hardly surprising considering he used 34 different line-ups in his debut season.

It has been noted that the Bianconeri under Pirlo rely more on individual talents to get them out of trouble, seemingly showing no certainty over their tactics or style of football.

At the start, he had spoken of a ‘liquid’ tactical approach that would begin with three at the back and then move to four when losing possession.

Juventus pay 40m for sacked coaches

Juventus risk paying over €40m in three years for sacked coaches Max Allegri and Maurizio Sarri.

The Bianconeri changed manager at the end of each of their last two seasons, despite that coach winning the Serie A title and still being under contract.

Allegri was dismissed in the summer of 2019 after five consecutive Scudetti and reaching the Champions League Final twice.

He still had a year to go on his contract and he took a Sabbatical while it ran down, continuing to pocket a full salary.

Ancelotti doesn’t judge Pirlo

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti doesn’t want to judge Andrea Pirlo but hopes Milan finish above Juventus this season.

“It’s a nice race as it is here in England,” Ancelotti told Sky Sport.

The Italian has coached both Juventus and Milan in his career, but he is way more attached to the Rossoneri with whom he won eight titles, including two Champions Leagues.

Pirlo and Tudor: a complicated relationship

Igor Tudor could replace Andrea Pirlo if Juventus lose against Udinese, and according to reports in Italy, the relationship between them has collapsed.

Tudor, a former Udinese and Hajduk Split coach, joined Pirlo’s technical staff in the summer. Unlike the former midfielder and his assistant Roberto Baronio, the Croat had already had some coaching experience, which is one of the main reasons he was brought in.
