Poste Italiane responded to comments made by the coach, suggesting that post workers are not subjected to as thorough a check as football managers
The Italian Post Office provided a quick response to Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri for suggesting that their work is not reviewed to the same extent as his as a football manager.
Former Chelsea manager Sarri was discussing the pressure he is subjected to after his team lost their place in Serie A to Inter when they lost Hellas Verona last weekend.
Sarri then attended a dinner with club president Andrea Agnelli and sports director Fabio Paratici, which led to rumors that he was fired and the former manager, Massimiliano Allegri, is returning.
He said the dinner was pre-organized some time ago, but that hasn’t stopped speculation about his future towards the defending Italian champions.
At his latest press conference in response to the idea that his work is under scrutiny, Sarri replied: “If I didn’t want to be under pressure, I would have worked at the post office.”
The Italian Post Office did not kindly welcome the 61-year-old’s words and responded with a statement on the matter chirping.
“Contrary to what Sarri claims, pressure exists at the post office,” reads. “He is accountable to citizens, businesses and public administrations.
“Poste Italiane invites Mr. Sarri to spend a few minutes of his precious time discovering that Poste is the largest company in the country, chosen by young graduates as one of the most attractive companies to work with, which has achieved one of the best performances of the stock market in 2019 and in third place, worldwide, among Italian companies in terms of image and reputation.
“We are waiting for him in one of our 15,000 centers so he can see our daily work for himself.”

Juventus will face AC Milan in the first leg of the Italian Cup semifinal on Thursday, with two Serie A games that will arrive before returning to the Champions League in the last 16 against Lyon at the end of the month.
It’s an important moment for the club to fight on all three fronts, and after eight Serie A titles on the rebound, surrendering to their Scudetto is unthinkable and unacceptable.
If Sarri receives its marching orders, the related tax documents will undoubtedly be sent via the faster first class deliveries.
