With wet feet to power at Juventus and not having much experience, Andrea Pirlo is expected to face many difficulties in Serie A in the 2020-21 season.
In the 2020-2021 season, Juventus has made a big change on the coaching bench. Instead of continuing to trust coach Maurizio Sarri, the Turin giant decided to put his faith in Andrea Pirlo. This is considered a bold and risky decision because Pirlo has never had any experience in coaching.
Even a few days before the opening round of Serie A 2020-2021, Andrea Pirlo received a training license. That is a great challenge because between the idea and reality are two completely different things. A good player does not necessarily turn into a talented coach.
Talking about his ideas, Pirlo confirmed that he would choose to play attacking in the style of imposing and controlling the ball. The role of the Juventus midfield becomes very important. However, last season, this was the weakness of the champions of Serie A.
But that was too little for Juventus to create a breakthrough in gameplay. The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic made Lao She unable to spend heavily to reinforce her forces. In the remainder of the summer market this year, the Serie A champions may only welcome one more striker to replace Higuain, who recently moved to the US to wear Inter Miami.
Pirlo is expected to have many difficulties in the first season to lead Juventus
Juventus has had 9 consecutive seasons of dominating the Serie A championship race. Andrea Pirlo’s minimum mission is to win the 10th Scudetto title. It is also the pressure placed on the shoulders of the former Italian midfielder.
In fact, in recent seasons, Juventus has not won the Scudetto as easily as before. They faced strong resistance from many competitors. Without saying that, in Serie A last season, Juventus was crowned, but only 1 point more than Inter Milan. This is the biggest challenge for Pirlo teachers and students this season.
In preparation for the toppling of the Juventus throne, Inter Milan had a significant addition of force with Achraf Hakimi (Real Madrid), Aleksandar Kolarov (Roma). Also, the Nerazzurri also bought off Alexis Sanchez. Most importantly, Coach Conte has kept top stars like Lukaku or Lautaro Martinez.
