Pirlo responds to Juve sack reports

Serie A

Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo has responded to reports that he may lose his job at the end of the season.

Juventus' dominance in Serie A came to an end on Saturday as they are mathematically out of the race for the title after Inter Milan's.

The Coppa Italia remains Juventus' only source of silverware this season after being dumped out of the UEFA Champions League by FC Porto in the round of 16.

There have been reports about a possible return for Massimiliano Allegri, but Pirlo insists he is fine after conversation with the owners.

"I am fine, I spoke to the owners the other day, as often happens. It certainly wasn’t the first time," he said, as per Goal.com

"We had a chat about everything, as always. I am not concerned when it comes to my work. I only hear rumours from you reporters. I am relaxed and concentrated on what I need to do, I’m not influenced by all these rumors.

"I am so concentrated on what I need to do that I don’t have time to read the newspapers."
