Andrea Pirlo can still secure his future as Juventus coach should he guide the Bianconeri to a strong season’s end.
A place in the Champions League will not suffice, meaning the 41-year-old manager must do two things to ensure that he starts next season in his job as Juve boss.
The two things he must do are to finish in second place – seemingly behind Inter – and to bring home some silverware in the shape of the Coppa Italia when his team face Atalanta in the final on May 19.
Both of the above would help Pirlo to convince Andrea Agnelli that his philosophy and tactics work and that he can once again make Juventus a force to be reckoned with, according to Tuttosport.
The coach will take his team to play Udinese next, followed by a tough end to the Serie A season that includes games against both Inter and a potentially decisive clash against AC Milan.
