Piro Pleads For Patience At Juventus

Pirlo Juventus

Andrea Pirlo described Federico Chiesa as “naive” after he was sent off on his debut in Saturday’s 1-1 Serie A draw against Crotone.

Chiesa, who joined the champions on loan from Fiorentina on transfer deadline day, saw red on the hour mark for a late challenge on Luca Cigarini.

He had earlier set up Alvaro Morata for Juve’s leveller after Simy had given Crotone the lead from the penalty spot.

Adrien Rabiot was dismissed in the 2-2 draw with Roma on September 27, Juve’s last competitive game after they were handed a 3-0 win for Napoli’s no-show last time out, and Pirlo accepts his fledgling side’s over-enthusiasm might come back to haunt them on occasion.

Champions League Draw: Messi v Ronaldo

Champions League Trophy

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are set to face each other after Juventus and Barcelona were drawn in Group G, while holders Bayern Munich will face Atletico Madrid in Group A.

The draw, which also saw Real Madrid and Inter Milan paired in Group B, took place without club officials present because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

And it was a particularly tough draw for Manchester United, who will play last season’s beaten finalists PSG, as well as 2020 semi-finalists RB Leipzig.

Elsewhere, Premier League champions Liverpool will have to negotiate a group containing Ajax, Atalanta and Danish side Midtjylland.

The 2020-2021 Serie A fixtures list has been released and Andrea Pirlo’s first league match in charge of Juventus will be at home to Sampdoria as he looks to guide the club to a record 10th successive Serie A title.

Juventus start at home to Sampdoria before a daunting trip to the Stadio Olimpico to take on Roma. For Inter Milan, who look set to be Juventus’ toughest challenger for the title, they begin their bid away to newly-promoted Benevento.

The release sparked lots of interest in when Pirlo and Conte will go head to head but fans will have to remain patient with the first meeting not until January 2021.

Juventus Name Andrea Pirlo As Their New Manager

Pirlo Juventus

Andrea Pirlo was named as the Juventus manager on Saturday night but only after president Andrea Agnelli decided he could not afford first choices Mauricio Pochettino and Zinedine Zidane.

Former Tottenham boss Pochettino reportedly wanted around £8million a year to take the reins in Turin, while Real Madrid head coach Zidane would have asked for even more, at around £10.8m.

As well as economic reasons, particularly given sacked coach Maurizio Sarri’s £21m pay-off, Pirlo has a similar on-field mentality to previous successful Juventus managers Antonio Conte and Massimiliano Allegri, which has worked in his favour with Agnelli.

Juventus SACK Maurizio Sarri

Sarri Juventus

Juventus have sensationally axed Maurizio Sarri after just one season in charge following the club’s Champions League elimination.

Despite leading the Turin giants to a ninth straight Serie A title, supporters and the club’s hierarchy have been left unimpressed by the veteran 61-year-old.

And the former Chelsea manager’s fate was sealed the day after the early European exit at the hands of Lyon.

The official announcement was released on Saturday following a crisis meeting held between members of the club’s hierarchy.

New Serie A Season To Begin September 12

Serie A Fixtures With Ball

Serie A has announced that the 2020-2021 season will begin on September 12, decision that has upset Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis.

With five Serie A teams still involved in Champions League and the Europa League, there is a possibility that at least one Italian team will play its last game of the 2019-2020 season on August 23.

De Laurentiis feels that having a potential pre-season of only three weeks is not long enough and he feels that the 2020-21 season should start on October 4 instead.

Napoli Beat Juventus To Win Coppa Italia Final

Napoli Coppa Italia

Napoli held their nerve to claim a first major trophy in six seasons by beating Juventus 4-2 in a penalty shootout in the Coppa Italia final.

Arkadiusz Milik scored the winning spot-kick after Paulo Dybala had seen his first for Juve saved, before team-mate Danilo blazed the second over.

This followed a hard-fought 0-0 over 90 minutes of few chances, played behind closed doors at the Stadio Olimpico.

It gives Napoli boss Gennaro Gattuso his first major trophy as a manager.

However, for his opposite number Maurizio Sarri it is another lost piece of potential silverware.

Juventus Reach Coppa Italia Final

Coppa Italia Trophy

Thirteen-time winners Juventus reached the Coppa Italia final on the away goals rule at AC Milan’s expense as Italy’s football season restarted.

After drawing 1-1 in Milan on 13 February, Juve could not find the net in a semi-final second leg played behind closed doors in Turin.

Cristiano Ronaldo missed a penalty awarded for handball before Milan’s Ante Rebic was sent off following his 16th-minute foul on Danilo.

Juventus, under former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri, will meet either Inter Milan or Napoli in Wednesday’s final in Rome.

Napoli take a 1-0 lead into Saturday’s Coppa Italia semi-final second leg.
