The sextuple winning manager recently announced he would leave Bayern this summer.
Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo has struggled to make a positive impact in his debut season. The defending champions have fallen behind in the title race – currently sitting fourth in the Serie A table.
A string of lacklustre games in Serie A brought Pirlo a lot of stick, and yet another Champions League fiasco only added more pressure to his job.
Now, with only a few games left in hand and the chances to regain the title appear to have petered out, Juve could look away from Pirlo after one season.
Flick recently announced that he would leave the Bavarians at the end of this season while the club has disapproved the decision of the German gaffer as ” unilateral communications”.
Perhaps, the speculations of Flick moving to the Germany national team – replacing Joachim Low as the head coach after Euros – spurred his exit talks and, adding to that, break-in relationship with Bayern’s Sporting Director Hasan Salihamidzic.
Juve’s interest in Flick doesn’t come as a surprise given the German’s unprecedented success with the Bavarians’ last season, winning every trophy and leaving every opponent behind in the process.
The Old Lady’s relentless pursuit of the holy-grail, i.e. Champions League, has led them to three managerial changes in the last three seasons.
Pirlo, without a doubt, is an up and coming manager, not the one who can scrape results week in and week out. Flick can be an ideal successor, but the German boss has to clear the air over his future whether he would be heading to the national team.
