Juventus have sacked manager Maurizio Sarri after just one year in charge. Sarri, 61, was brought in last summer to replace Max Allegri, who left to take some time away from football.
Sarri was able to keep up the Juventus tradition of winning Serie A, leading the club to their ninth title in a row, but like so many before him he fell short in Europe.
However, the Turin club have now announced that Sarri has been relieved of his duties.
A statement on the club’s website read;
“Juventus Football Club announces that Maurizio Sarri has been relieved of his post as coach of the First Team,”
“The club would like to thank the coach for having written a new page in Juventus’ history with the victory of the ninth-consecutive championship, the culmination of a personal journey that led him to climb all the divisions of Italian football.”
Juventus were dumped out of the Champions League last-16 by Lyon on Friday evening with club president Andrea Agnelli saying they would take a few days to “evaluate” their options.
