Champions League: Pirlo speaks on getting sacked after Juventus crash out



Juventus manager, Andrea Pirlo, is adamant he is not afraid of being sacked, after the Serie A side crashed out of the Champions League against 10-man Porto on Tuesday.

With the tie level at 3-3 on aggregate in extra time, Sergio Oliveira’s free kick from distance went under a Juve wall.

The goal meant Adrien Rabiot’s late header was merely a consolation.

“I don’t know why [Maurizio] Sarri was removed,” Pirlo told Sky Italia after the game.

“I am the coach of Juventus, I was brought in for a more ample approach, a project that was always meant to develop over several years, so I am not concerned [about being sacked].

“I am not happy to be working with a full week, as I’d have preferred to stay in the Champions League.

“Now that we’re in this situation, we can work on various aspects in training, which we haven’t had time to do so far this season, and try to improve on those.”
