Juventus sack manager after one season


After one season, Italian giant, Juventus have sacked Maurizio Sarri as manager.

This development is not unconnected to the fact the club was knocked out of the Champions League by Lyon at the last-16 stage.

In spite guiding Juventus to a ninth straight Serie A title, Sarrie was relieved of his job. Juventus are two-time European Cup/Champions League winners but have not lifted the trophy since 1996

Italian Sarri, 61, was appointed on a three-year contract last summer after one year at Premier League club Chelsea.

The club, in a statement however, thanked Sarri for “having written a new page in Juventus’ history”, adding that it was “the culmination of a personal journey that led him to climb all the divisions of Italian football”.
