Mauricio Pochettino   Pochettino’s reputation may have suffered a hit after the debacle at PSG, but the Spaniard's contribution should not be questioned if provided with the right squad. Perhaps Juve could be the ideal team for Poch to hit the ground running again?

Considering the conditions at Juventus, a no-nonsense coach is exactly what the team will need.
