Juventus have sacked Maurizio Sarri following their Champions League exit to Lyon.
Despite leading the club to a ninth-successive league title, there were doubts over his future. He had been struggling to impose his famous ‘Sarriball’ style on the squad.
A club statement read: “Juventus 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.”
Andrea Pirlo is set to replace Sarri as Juve head coach.
