The Italian’s first year in management has been horrid, and it appears Juve will miss out on the Champions League.
Despite having a superstar-laden squad at his disposal, Pirlo failed to get past Porto in the Champions League and surrendered Juve’s title after nine years of dominating Serie A.
Juventus officials are believed to be considering sacking the former midfielder after just one year, leaving the 41-year-old at a crossroads.
The summer transfer window is fast approaching and it’s believed Juve will make whoelsale changes, with Pirlo’s job currently in a tentative state.
He’s only had one managerial role which, so far, hasn’t gone well.

Despite speculation linking Pirlo with the sack, Juventus vice-president Pavel Nedved insists he’ll be going nowhere.
“Pirlo and Ronaldo will stay at Juventus,” he said earlier this week.
