Money talks, probably knew he could at least get the scudetto, he’s now getting paid to do nothing and has the highest Italian football honour next to his name.Has no power to strengthen the squad that’s with Agnelli and Paratici. They brought in Rabiot and Ramsey on huge wages and Sarri was stuck with them and other old players on huge wages. Then last year he didn’t know what they were doing with Higuain, Dybala and Mandzukic. Players never suited Sarri and he could never implement what he did at Napoli. Sarri’s fault is he should have known that but money talks I guess.
Theres lots of articles if you google it.Whats your tomato for this one? Last I heard he turned down the Monaco job and was being lined up by the Saudis to take over at Newcastle (obviously thats off now)
“I was in Barcelona that year and I met [Barcelona president] Bartomeu in a bar. We greeted each other because we were taking the children to the same school and we were talking for five minutes. That generated a rumor that set off alarms because there were more teams that wanted us, and when they asked me I wanted to settle it drastically.
“I did not want to disrespect Barcelona. I could have said things differently. Espanyol has made a name for me. But I’m not arrogant and I didn’t like making a statement like that. Maybe now I wouldn’t because in life you never know what will happen.”
He's basically officially tied himself to the rival board ticket, so won't be managing them until Bartomeu goesXavi is probably the other main candidate, again so much depends on the presidency, how much he'd have to spend etc. Reckon it's almost time to say do a Chelsea for 1 season and play the kids, clear out the deadwood etc., doubt the new manager would be allowed to do that though.
Oh yes, big achievement that was.Whats the point though? Sarri won the league.
I imagine he’s been brought in because he’s cheap, loved by fans, respected by the players and will do what our management want him to do. Their seemed to be a disconnect between the management and our last two coaches.Juve have an ageing squad. Is Pirlo being brought in to rebuild the team with younger players? If so he'll need some slack cut in terms of winning CL.
We could, instead we decided to spend all our money on a CB.And yet his style of play at Napoli in his last year there was some of the best football to watch.
Juve couldn't afford to back him?
