Juventus have sacked Maurizio Sarri after just one year at the Italian club.
The sacking of Sarri is coming despite winning Juve’s ninth consecutive Serie A title.
The decision was made in a crisis meeting this afternoon between President Andrea Agnelli, directors and the coach.
An official announcement was made Saturday afternoon.
It 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”
Sarri often seen has an underachiever finally won the first Italian trophy of his career, their ninth Serie A title in a row, but only one point ahead of Inter and with none of the attractive football that was expected.
His position was already shaky after losing the Italian Supercup to Lazio in December, then the Coppa Italia Final to Napoli in June.
Last night’s Champions League exit to Olympique Lyonnais proved the final straw, going out on away goals after a 1-0 first-leg defeat and 2-1 second-leg victory.
