Multiple managerial changes add uncertainty to Serie A

Thursday 06 June 2019

This summer is set to bring a lot of changes in Serie A, especially in the managerial department. It is hardly arguable that the Serie A title race has been reduced to a one-horse race in over the past decade with Juventus winning the title year-after-year.

Over the course of the last decade, the likes of Napoli, AS Roma and Milan clubs have repeatedly tried to change the status quo in the league, without success.

However, the upcoming season could prove to be one of the most exciting in the recent history as most top Italian clubs are expected to be under a new reign next season, and the bookies offers are all backing Inter especially to launch a challenge to the long-term title winners Juve.

Where the Bianconeri have won the last 8 Scudetti, their odds for the coming season are sure to lengthen slightly, while odds on Inter to challenge will shorten. Potentially also Milan, with significant summer investment, could be an outside bet.

Champions Juventus have already got rid of Massimiliano Allegri and they appear to be interested in Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri. Now Sarri has a lot of experience managing in Italy, but he has never won a league title before. Undoubtedly, the Old Lady would be huge favourites to win the Serie A title once more, especially with Cristiano Ronaldo in the side. However, one can’t help but feel that it won’t be as straight-forward for them under the new management and with stronger oppositions.

Inter Milan have also made a very encouraging appointment in Antonio Conte. They have finished in the top-four for two consecutive seasons, but they can’t seem to establish a title-challenging side. Conte has won the league title with Juventus before, and under his guidance, the Nerazzurri would be keen to reshape the order of the Italian football in 19-20.

Across the city, AC Milan have endured an even more disappointing season. Milan once again failed to qualify for Champions League, and as a result, Gennaro Gattuso has made his exit from San Siro. The Rossoneri have spent a lot of money in last few windows, and the club’s ownership clearly have lofty ambitions, however, their spending hasn’t turned into results on the pitch, and they would be looking to rectify that problem with the new appointment.

Like Milan, AS Roma are also coming on the back of a hugely disappointing season. The Rome club finished sixth and missed out on Champions League football for the first time since 2012-13. Roma must be very smart with their managerial appointment as they can’t afford to be left behind as Milan clubs strengthen their squads.

The only major Italian club that might benefit from continuity in 19-20 is Napoli. The Naples club were impressive in their first season under Carlo Ancelotti as they comfortably finished in the second spot. Ancelotti would be looking to hold onto his key players this summer, and also to add in key areas. He is an experienced manager, and he must be aware that the 19-20 season could be a big opportunity for his side.
