Juventus sack Maurizio Sarri after Champions League exit
The 61-year-old Italian only joined the club last summer and led them to ninth consecutive Serie A title
Juventus have sacked head coach Maurizio Sarri after losing their UEFA Champions League round of 16 tie against Lyon on Friday.
Sarri, who joined the Bianconeri last summer after leading Chelsea to Europa League triumph last year was dismissed from his position as the head coach after failing to qualify for the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
He led the club to ninth straight Serie A title in his only season with the Turin club and had two years left on his current deal.
The former Napoli’s manager failure in the continental stage led the club to the sacking of him and now the club is considering former Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino for the vacant position.
Juventus beat Lyon 2-1 on the night with Cristiano Ronaldo’s brace but failed to qualify for the quarterfinals after losing on away goals.
