Former Juventus defender supports the Bianconeri’s boss.
are not in their best form this season. Standing fourth in the Serie A table, 12 points behind the league leadersInter
, makes it very difficult for the defending champions to repeat last year’s glory.
Juve are set to faceNapoli
tomorrow and it has been rumored that the boss
could lose his job if he doesn’t come out of the pitch with all 3 points.
However, former Pirlo teammate and currentGuangzhou FC
believes it would be a huge mistake to let Pirlo go and he needs more time to prove his worth.
In an interview with
La Gazzetta dello
Sport, Cannavaro said:
“When Juve picked Andrea, he knew very well that he had no experience.
“It’s logical that he should have time to mature, even for his relationship with the team. There are still 30 points to play for and it’s right to leave this judgment pending.
“And he did good things, launching young players and managed a complicated dressing room with people who won a lot.
“Sure, some things don’t work, he has made mistakes: he’s human. It’s a heritage that must be protected. After all, if Juve don’t confirm his position, what did they choose him to do last summer?
“They would be wrong twice if they take that decision now. And the blame can’t only be his if the players make mistakes on and off the pitch.”
