Juventus coach Sarri on job doubts: I'm happy with pressure

Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri insists he doesn't fear for his job.

There's been talk of Juve making contact with Mauricio Pochettino in recent days.

But Sarri replied, “Have you ever asked a Formula 1 driver if he is afraid of speed? It's part of the job, it goes well if you win and badly if you lose. I'm happier feeling someone breathing down my neck.

“I have a contract and I want to honour it. Look, my future is tomorrow, we must take it one game at a time and the rest is merely a consequence. There are difficulties working in all clubs. There's probably more media pressure here, while in Naples it's more of a localised issue, but football is difficult everywhere you go.

“It was a different situation at Chelsea. I liked the idea of going to England, but last summer, I really wanted to come back to Italy."
