Maurizio Sarri has suggested that he might quit Juventus or even being a manager entirely at the end of the season.

When asked about a possibility of him taking charge of his former club Napoli, ahead of the Juventus’ Serie A match against them, Maurizio Sarri‘s reply took a totally different and a rather unexpected turn.

In 2015, Maurizio Sarri overtook Napoli as the head coach. For the first half of the season, Napoli remained at the top of Serie A earning his side the title ‘winter champions.’ Eventually, they slipped up and finished third in the league.

In his three year service, the title of being the half champions was the only thing he managed to win. Sarri then left for Chelsea before finally signing for Juventus at the start of this season.

Asked whether he would like to return to Napoli, the Juventus boss revealed that not only was he planning on leaving the Italian champions, he could even end his career as a coach at the end of the season.

“After this experience, I could even quit. It depends on what energy I have left and if I think I can do well again. These aren’t things I’m thinking about at this moment,” he said as per Goal.

“Pressure is a false myth. External pressure must not influence you, but if your motivation is lost then it is better to stop.

“I don’t know if at the end of my contract with Juventus I will be the same Sarri. If yes, I will continue. Otherwise, no.”
