Sacchi: Pirlo’s Decision To Take Juventus Job  Was A ‘mistake

Former Milan coach Arrigo Sacchi said Andrea Pirlo’s decision to take the job at Juventus was a ‘mistake’ that might have ‘cost him dearly’.

The former midfielder replaced Maurizio Sarri at the helm of Juventus ahead of 2020-21 and lasted only one season at the Bianconeri.

Pirlo won the Coppa Italia and the Supercoppa Italiana during his time in charge, when Juventus secured a place in the Champions League on the last day of the championship.

The inexperienced coach was then sacked after his first season as a coach and replaced by the returning Max Allegri.

Sacchi believes Pirlo’s decision to join the Old Lady might have been a ‘mistake that could cost him dearly’, as the former Juventus player is still without a job.

“I think he can re-enter the world of football,” Sacchi said as a guest of Tiki Taka. “You also need a little luck, he went to a Juve where it was almost impossible to do well.

“Pirlo accepted out of ambition and made a mistake that could cost him dearly.”

In recent weeks, the tactician has been linked with the jobs at both Barcelona and Genoa, but Xavi has replaced Ronald Koeman at the Blaugrana and Andriy Shevchenko was brought in to succeed Davide Ballardini at Genoa.

Pirlo is still without a job and Sacchi believes the one year at Juventus could be the reason.
