Maurizio Sarri in unperturbed by Juventus' blip in form, with the manager insisting that if he couldn't handle the pressure of the job he would have looked to work at the post office.

Champions Juventus have been knocked off top spot in Serie A by Inter Milan on goal difference after two successive away defeats. Juventus president Andrea Agnelli is highly convinced the Guardiola is the right man to restore dominance to his team.

At his latest press conference in response to the idea that his job is under scrutiny, Sarri replied: "If I didn't want to be under pressure I would have worked at the Post Office".

Those comments angered the Italian Post Office, which furiously hit back on Wednesday. "It is responsible to citizens, businesses and public administrations".

"It is considered among the best 500 best companies worldwide for the quality of working life; which has enjoyed one of the best performances on the stock exchange in 2019 and which sits in third place, on a global scale, in terms of Italian companies for its image and reputation".

Preparing for Thursday's Coppa Italia semi-final first leg at Milan, Sarri was asked about the pressure and he told reporters, "If I hadn't wanted to be under scrutiny, I would have applied to work at the post office".

"We wait for him to observe in person our daily work, in one of 15,000 offices".

Should Sarri be given his marching orders, the relevant tax documents will no doubt be sent out via the most prompt of first-class deliveries.
