Official: Maurizio Sarri is the New Juventus Coach as of Sunday 16 June 2019

Juventus making the official announcement that the new coach is Maurizio Sarri on Sunday 16 June 2019. Sarri was coaching Chelsea in the Premier League and won the UEFA Europa League. Sarri signed a three-year contract with Juventus until June 30, 2022.   It is a good transfer market for Juventus on their quest to win the UEFA Champions League.

Juventus FC TicketsSarri coached his last game Chelsea in the UEFA Europa League final ending his one year with Chelsea in grand style: Chelsea 4 – 1 Arsenal.   Sarri lifted his first European trophy.

Sarri, 60 years old, was born in Naples on January 10, 1959.  Sarri’s professional coaching career started since 2005 in the Serie B championship, leading Pescara, Arezzo and Avellino.   The road to Serie A, however, was still long: Sarri guided, Verona, Perugia, Grosseto, Alessandria and Sorrento, between the Serie B league and the lega pro.

Then in 2012 the story began… with Empoli: in his initial season, Sarri almost led his team to promotion to the top flight, however, Livorno was able to win in the play-off final. A year later, that same Empoli team finished second and were able to reach a new rank in the top division.

After a successful campaign with Empoli, keeping them in the top league, there were no questions to be asked about the quality of the manager.

In 2015, Sarri landed in Naples.   Sarri’s record with Napoli is high being the main contender for his “now team” Juventus.  Sarri’s years with Napoli from 2015 to 2018 ended with 82, 86 and 91 points. Each seasonal improvement was a Serie A record for the Club. Two out of the three seasons, Napoli avoided the preliminary qualification to the Champions League and advanced straight to the group stages.

In 2019, Sarri’s new season starting his adventure with Juventus.  All the best.

Italian Soccer Serie A supports Italy National Team

The Italian National team continues their preparations for the UEFA EURO 2020 Qualifier against Greece and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Tickets to sports events worldwideThe Italian Team had a press conference at Coverciano on Wednesday 5 June 2019 following the morning training session.   Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne is optimistic with the team to do a good job to qualify.  The bad news is that Juventus defender Leonardo Spinazzola had to leave today Coverciano due to injury.

As reported by the Italian Football Federation (FIG), Lorenzo Insigne said,  “We’re building a strong group with the aim of qualifying for the next European Championship at all costs. We’re Italy and we deserve to be taking part.”   Insigne received his first call-up from firner Head Coach Cesare Prandelli back in 2012.

After celebrating his 28th birthday on Tuesday, Insigne issued a rallying cry just a few days prior to the team’s upcoming qualifiers against Greece and Bosnia and Herzegovina: “We’ve been studying Greece over the past few days and it won’t be an easy game. We must start strong and look to make the most of our qualities in between the lines right from the off. I have a great desire to increase my goalscoring tally for the National Team, up until now I’ve only scored four. Obviously, considering my age and skills, it’s now the time to give even more, both for Italy and my club.”

Insigne also declared on his experience in this Serie season,  “Enjoying a great season and not winning anything is always tough. As a Neapolitan and as a captain, there’s a lot of pressure and a lot is expected of me. Sarri to Juve? It’s disappointing to hear these rumours because he did a lot for us players and the Napoli fans. He was always on our side but as he said, he’s a professional. I hope that he changes his mind in the end.”


Italy Group J Standing after two games:   Italy is top of Group J on full points after beating Finland 2-0 and Liechtenstein 6-0. Greece and Bosnia Herzegovina both have four points, Finland while Armenia and Liechtenstein have no points.

  • THE UEFA EURO QUALIFIERS – Here is the situation as reported by UEFA. Qualifying for UEFA EURO 2020 will have 24 finalists. The 55 teams were split into ten groups of five or six.

Hello, my friends. Here are the 2018-2019 Serie A Week 37 Results / Thirty-seventh Round on Saturday 18, Sunday 19, and Monday 20 May 2019. There is only 1 game after this one to end the season on Sunday 26 May.

Serie A tickets

Here is the current situation. Juventus is the winner of the 2018-2019 Serie A Scudetto.  Juventus were awarded the Scudetto at the Allianz Stadium following the 1 – 1 draw against Atalanta.  Highlight of the game is the goodbye of Juventus defender Andrea Barzagli receiving a standing ovation.

AS Roma wasted the chance to win the away game at the Mapei Stadium against Sassuoo.  The game ended with a goalless draw sharing one point each.  Problem is that AS Roma needed all 3 points  to climb the ladder.   Ironically, Roma defeated Juventus last week, but failed to shine today.  Bottom line, the battle for a spot in the Champions League next season is still open for Atalanta, AS Roma, AC Milan, and it will be decided maybe in the last game.    Roma are in the fifth position being two points behind Atalanta, who will play against Juventus in Turin on Sunday, and if AC Milan defeat Frosinone, Roma will go down to the 6th position.

Napoli crushed Inter with a 4 – 1 at the San Paolo Stadium.  It is a painful defeat for Inter because they also lost the 3rd position!   Inter stepped down to the 4th position with  points while Atalanta went up from the 4th to the 3rd position after their 1 – 1 draw with Juventus.   The battle for the 3rd and 4th position will be decided in the last game between Atalanta, Inter, and AC Milan.

Good news for AC Milan claiming an important home victory because they went up from the 6th position to the 5th position.   Milan defeated Frosinone with a 2 – 0 at the San Siro Stadium.  The Champions League spot is still open and will be decided in the last game.

Mathematically speaking, the two teams already relegated to the Serie B are Chievo Verona and Frosinone.  Good news is for Bologna securing the salvation to remain in the Serie A next season after the draw at the Olimpico di Roma Stadium ending Lazio 3 – 3.

Genoa and Cagliari ended the game with a 1 – 1 draw.   It’s a good result for Cagliari because they are saved, but for Genoa, it is a bad result still risking to be relegated.  Bad news for Genoa going down to the relegation zone in the 18th position.  Good news is for Empoli, for the moment saved.  Empoli went up from the 18th to the 17th position.   Empoli with 38 points is 1 point above Empoli with 37 points.

Udinese defeated SPAL with a 3 – 2 at the Friuli Stadium.
