Maurizio Sarri and Blaise Matuidi were the first two victims of elimination in the round of 16 of the Champions League against OL. The first was sacked, while the second went to Inter Miami. The two men met this year at Juventus and discovered each other. Result: 48 matches played for the French under the orders of the Italian technician.
In an interview for The team, the 2018 world champion returned to his relationship with his coach: “I never had a problem with him. He is a coach who works a lot on tactics to foil the opponent. I think he’s a shy person too, who doesn’t necessarily go naturally to others. We know how hard it is to be a coach. But if there is one thing that stood out to me, it was during the Covid period. I was in trouble and he surprised me because he called me every day to get news. I discovered the man “. A failed season, even if Juventus won a 9th consecutive championship, for Sarri who was therefore dismissed and replaced by Andrea Pirlo.
