When Andrea Pirlo assumed the technical direction of Juventus, his pulse did not tremble to remove from the squad several renowned players, such as Blaise Matuidi and Gonzalo Higuaín, who left for Inter Miami from MLS. Now, the coach doesn't know what will happen to his future and declared that he isn't worried about his continuity, despite the fact that the Turin club has minimal chances of being crowned champion in the current Italian Serie A tournament, led by Inter Milan. 

"I'm focused on what I have to do and I must lead the club to the Champions League, and try to win the Italian Cup", the 41-year-old former midfielder said at a press conference, according to the French agency AFP. Juventus marches in fourth place in the Italian tournament with 66 points, 16 points behind the current leader, Inter Milan (82), who this Saturday beat Crotone 2-0 as a visitor, in the absence of five dates for the closing of the tournament.

Regarding the reports about his possible departure from the leadership of Vecchia Signora, the former Inter and Milan player assured that "I'm calm about my work, about what I have to do and all those rumors do not influence me". "I spoke with the owners (John Elkann, president of the holding company that owns the club), a few days ago", said Pirlo, who came to lead the team last European summer.

Regarding the presence in training of the Italian-American businessman, the former Brescia Calcio player said that "it isn't the first time he has come, it has already happened three or four times and we have talked about everything". Finally, the former champion of the 2006 World Cup in Germany emphasized: "I'm calm with my work".
