Maurizio Arrivabene again linked to Juventus

Maurizio Arrivabene may not be unemployed for too long with rumours once again linking him to football club Juventus.

On Monday, the former Philip Morris vice-president found himself unemployed after Ferrari gave him the boot.

The Scuderia opted not to renew Arrivabene’s contract, instead handing the team boss role to technical director Mattia Binotto.

Arrivabene, though, need not worry as he reportedly has options.

According to Corriere dello Sport, the Italian will meet with Juventus president Andrea Agnelli later this week to speak about a “full-time” role.

Arrivabene already has ties with the Serie A team having been on their board of directors since 2012 while last October he denied that he was in line to replace Giuseppe Marotta as CEO.

“I have been an exponent of the company’s Board of Directors for many years and before taking up this position in Maranello, I had the delegation of control/risks and I am pleased to remain on the board, provided that the appointment is accepted at the next shareholders’ meeting, and I am honoured, but my work remains here,” he said in October.
