The managerial merry-go-round is about to start spinning in Serie A and it's last chance saloon for Juventus coach Claudio Ranieri.

Il Corriere Dello Sport claims anything less than a win against Milan will signal the end of the former Chelsea coach's reign at the Olimpico.

The report claims Juve will be making changes at the end of the season, but some of those could be forced early by the club's hierarchy. Voices surrounding Vinovo imply that Ranieri will be sacked if his side lose this weekend in the big showdown.

The board have organised a meeting next Tuesday to discuss the club's future plans with or without the current coach. Taking Ranieri's place if he gets the boot will be former defender and current Italy assistant coach Ciro Ferrara.

The bookmakers in Italy have the former Napoli man as favourite to come in if things continue heading downwards. Juve could risk losing third place to Fiorentina, a scenario which no-one wants to see in Turin.

Ranieri's time on the bench is ticking away, and he will be hoping his men save him from the wrath of directors on Sunday night.
