Maurizio Sarri keen to see out his contract with Juventus. “Have you ever asked a Formula 1 driver if he is afraid of speed? No.”
Juventus head coach Maurizio Sarri insists he is not afraid of being sacked and is keen to see out his contract with the Serie A leaders. The Italian champions hold a six point advantage over Inter Milan and Atalanta, while Lazio trail by six points back in fourth place.
Juventus face Lazio on Monday night and a win would take them to within six points of the title.
Asked if he is scared of being sacked, Sarri said: “Have you ever asked a Formula 1 driver if he is afraid of speed? No. There are risks which come with this job, if you are afraid of these risks you shouldn’t do this job.
“So, I am living this situation with ease, knowing that this is my job. E everything is good if you win, everything is bad if you lose. And the logic consequence is the criticism of the coach. It’s part and parcel of this job.”
“Look, I have a contract and as far as I am concerned I want to honour it at all costs. My future is tomorrow, meaning that we have to think about the single matches without thinking about the next 12 months.”
