Eredivisie 2018/2019 Tactical Analysis: Matthijs de Ligt at Ajax

It is the end of an era for Juventus as the five consecutive title-winning manager Massimiliano Allegri will no longer lead the team. The club board decided that after five successful years with the Italian specialist, they want to see the club go in a different direction.

They won it all in Italy, but it seems that the few disappointing Champions League campaigns took the lead and resulted in a managerial switch.

There were some controversial opinions on the team’s new head coach Maurizio Sarri following his inconsistent first Premier League season coaching Chelsea. He had some ups and downs but luckily, the Blues ended the season at the top, winning the Europa League and securing Champions League football for next season.

This has surely affected the decision on Juventus’ next manager, as the club recognized Allegri’s replacement in him.

This raised a lot of questions on what’s going to be the team’s tactical approach, how is he going to implement his Sarriball philosophy, and is he good enough to keep them at the highest level.

The transfer window is another matter that’s been discussed since his appointment since there are no signs of the Black and Whites being active out there. Even though there is one certain player that is heavily linked with the club and might be just enough for them to dominate once again.
