Pirlo, Ronaldo's Futures In Air After Juventus Knocked Out

Juventus were dumped out of the UEFA Champions League round of 16 on Tuesday night by Porto on away goals which leaves Cristiano Ronaldo and Andrea Pirlo's futures up in the air ahead of next season.

Maurizio Sarri was sacked after he could only deliver the Scudetto of the Serie A for the 2019-20 season bringing in club legend and world cup winner, Pirlo as his replacement.

Ronaldo was also brought in to help win Europe's elite competition but all these had not panned out well for the Old Lady as they were knocked out of the competition's last 16 -- the earliest they have witnessed even without Ronaldo at the club.

Juventus' problems get bigger when attention is given to the Serie A table as they sit 3rd behind winter champions, AC Milan and league leaders, Inter Milan.

Inter Milan is 10 points ahead of Juventus and 6 points ahead of AC Milan. Juventus, however, has an outstanding game to play but even with a win, they will still be at that position -- just closer to second.

If this continues, they will be deprived of the Scudetto for the first time since 2012.

Juventus might just end the season with the Italian super cup (which they already won) and the Coppa Italia (still in the final).

Judging by Juventus' standard, that is very bad as they have sacked Max Allegri and Sarri who had at least won all of the league titles during their stay at the Turin club.

Ronaldo who is a winner -- likes to win the UEFA cup more than any trophy, might reconsider his stay at the club though with still a year on his contract.
