Juventus ‘meet with representatives of Mauricio Pochettino’ as Italian giants want former Tottenham boss to replace struggling Maurizio Sarri
- Mauricio Pochettino could be in line to become the next manager of Juventus
- The Italian giants are said to be unhappy with the progress of Maurizio Sarri
- Representatives of Pochettino have reportedly expressed his desire to join
- At Juve he would link up with Paulo Dybala, who he tried to sign for Tottenham
Juventus are continuing to monitor their managerial situation and are poised to make a move for former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino.
Current manager Maurizio Sarri remains on thin ice in Turin, despite his Juve side leading Serie A and poised to become champions once again.
Yet Sarri’s side have lost as many matches as closest rivals Inter Milan this season already, being defeated on four occasions, and have failed to run away with the division as they have for several season previously.
Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino could set to return to management with Juventus
Now the powers that be at Juve have already begun to have a series of informal contacts with some of the world’s best managers, according to Turin’s La Stampa,
Juve have reportedly had direct contact with a representative very close to Pochettino, as they earmark him as Sarri’s potential replacement.
The Argentine coach is of Italian origin, to be precise Piedmontese, and is said to have expressed his willingness through representatives to try an experience in Italy.

Pochettino is said to be open to a move to Serie A, in order to take the reins of an elite-level club like Juventus.
In Turin Pochettino would link up with compatriot Paulo Dybala, who he had tried unsuccessfully to sign for the duration of the summer transfer window while at Spurs.
For a few months, after the dismissal from Tottenham, Pochettino was without a team and quickly became a front-runner to replace Sarri should Juve have parted ways mid-season.
The former Chelsea boss Sarri has had a fractious relationship at Juve since his arrival and has faced the axe on several occasions as the pressure mounted around the reigning champions.
Pochettino has been out of a job since leaving Spurs and enjoying a break away from football
Early on Pochettino was placed alongside Zinedine Zidane as a prime candidate for Juve in the potential case of Sarri’s departure, though the Frenchman has since taken back his former job at Real Madrid
Pochettino is seen by Juve as a modern day coach who reflects the characteristics of the club: young, very elegant and skilled in communication with a great quality in developing his teams.
Pochettino is a lover of 4-2-3-1 and 4-3-3 and would have no particular problems of adaptation to Italian football.
