Maurizio Sarri believes that the Juventus hierarchy would not make a rash decision about his future based on the results of a single match.

Courtesy of Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus grabbed a 2-1 win against Lyon in the home leg of the Champions League Round of 16 tie on Friday.

But the result was still not good enough for Juve to push them onto the next stage of the competition. Having lost the first leg 1-0, not getting a goal in France six months ago cost them as they got eliminated on away goals.

The elimination comes as a huge disappointment as the Bianconeri were expected to go a little further in the competition. A few optimists even expected them to go all the way through and win it.

Maurizio Sarri’s future had already looked uncertain in recent weeks, and being unable to deliver on the grandest of stages has only made it worse.

Sarri, however, finds these type of talks ‘offensive’ and is not at all stressing out about his job at the moment.

“My words were not difficult to interpret. I don’t think directors of a top-level will make a decision based on one match. They are going to evaluate the whole season,” Sarri told Sky Sports Italia.

“I find this kind of question offensive, but not towards me, it’s offensive towards the directors.

“I have a contract, I’ll respect it and I don’t expect anything.”
