Juventus chief Fabio Paratici insists coach Maurizio Sarri will be in charge next season.

Paratici was speaking before Monday night’s victory over Lazio.

He said, “The talk is all in the media. I’ve been here for 10 years, we have been top of the table basically for nine non-stop. We won trophies with Max Allegri over five years, yet every time after a draw – even a win – there was an internal reunion.

“Without doubt, Sarri will be the Juventus coach next season.”

Paratici also spoke of Sarri’s relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo.

He added: “Cristiano is a very sensitive, polite guy who doesn’t let his status as best player in the world, Ballon d’Or winner, etc weigh on anyone. He talks perfectly normally with coach and directors, just like every other player.

“Cristiano is super-convinced of staying here. As for Paulo Dybala, we are discussing a renewal with his entourage, he is a very important player and can give us so much more in future.”
