Won and left with some dignity, although i would have preferred if he resigned, or some mutual agreement or something rather than us sacking him. It just sounds bad sacking a legend. Thank you Pirlo, we know deep down this season wasnt all your fault, you shouldnt have been hired in the first place. The position you wer egiven requires patience and a top club hiring someone new to scene inevitably lead to this. Thank you much love. :heart:

He's still a legend, but this was definitely the wrong career move for him, starting at Juve and learn how to be a coach was simply too much, too soon. Maybe he'll develop later into a great coach.

At least I'm glad he leaves with his head up, 2 trophies for a rookie coach isn't bad.

Thank you for everything Andrea, we know you did your absolute best here and even with all the disappointments considered i will still always appreciate him for at least managing see off the season on a positive by winning the Coppa and grabbing a much needed Top 4 spot, frankly however just that obivously not encouraging or nearly sufficient enough for a club like Juventus, afterall shoes were just too big to fill without any experience and the main ones to blame for the way things turned out this season are those that chose to gamble on him in the first place without taking everything into account.

Luckily though things are now beginning to take a turn towards normality and this official news regarding his sacking was another big step into the right direction.

Grazie mister
2 thropies aren't bad for starter. At least he didn't get choked in a final match.
i hope someday if he became a rising star and a potentially great coach and in the same time juve need a coach, he won't hold a grudge againts us
still a long way ahead to learn

Can’t genuinly hate this guy, did all he could and its nice to see him admitting that this whole appointment was probably too much of a risk/gamble in the first place, apparently neither him or the management recognized it to be the case initially which seriously raises some question marks especially regarding our board but then again the ship has already sailed and luckily we look again to be making some smart decision/choices for a change.

Most of luck in future endeavors.

Strange to see all the "you'll come back one day" posts. Pirlo's been such a trainwreck this season, I have serious doubts he'll make it all as a coach, let alone do well enough to get a 2nd shot at Juve. The competition for coaching gigs is cruel, currently he's in the same position as Ferrara and Stramaccioni ~a decade back. Ferrara after Juventus failure got 4 months at Sampdoria and that was it, he was done as a coach in Italian top flight. Stramaccioni got a season in Udinese and that was it for him as well, his career fizzled out in Greece, Czech Rep. and Iran.

An uncharacteristically classy send off from this mess of a club. This was way too soon for Pirlo, it’s unfathomable that a player who never coached before would have done the job that the fans expected. Shame on the club for trying to sell this abortion of an idea to the fans and in the process screwing up our winning run. Watching games this season felt like watching the blind lead the blind which is unacceptable for this club. It’s fortunate that we ended in 4th.

I expect he will do much better at a club with lower expectations and eventually become a good coach. Despite the difficulties he brought home two trophies and that can’t be sniffed at.

Pirlo was too good as a player and they rarely become good coaches. Mediocre players are more likely to be good coaches.

It doesnt get any harder than managing a huge club and where players know you're an amateur and learning on the job. The leaders we had in the dressing room were just as big as him, if not bigger and without a doubt he needs a place where he can grow and learn, which im sure he will. Them 2 trophies gives him a good foundation to start somewhere where theres less pressure. Whether he makes it or not time will tell, one things for certain, it aint over just yet.
