Juventus president Agnelli revisits Sarri sacking

Juventus president Andrea Agnelli revisited the sacking of Maurizio Sarri at yesterday's Shareholders' Meeting.

Despite winning the title, Sarri was sacked and replaced by Andrea Pirlo.

Agnelli said, “Pavel Nedved and Federico Cherubini are here, Fabio Paratici has entered the bubble with the team after a new confirmed case. They all deserve the praise for what we achieved last season.

“The ninth consecutive Serie A title didn't find the right recognition from us, from the fans and others but I am convinced that in a few years everyone will understand what we've done.

“There is, however, disappointment, for the two Finals we lost. It still burns like the elimination from the Champions League.

“Sarri is a great person, cultured and with a sense of humour, with many interests in addition to football which is his first passion, so I am extremely happy that he won the championship with us.

“However, inside the locker room there must be an alchemy that leads to overcome obstacles that may seem insurmountable. This alchemy was not created with the whole environment. He brought the Scudetto cup to the museum and he will forever be remembered as one of the winning coaches of Juventus.

“Off the pitch, before this situation, there were results in line with expectations: revenues from sponsors that have reached €130m and Juventus' image on Instagram where we are the most followed Italian brand with 2.2 million more than Gucci."
