Juventus Sack Maurizio Sarri After Champions League Crash Out
Italian professional football club, Juventus have sacked head coach Maurizio Sarri after being knocked out of the Champions League.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice against Lyon but it was not enough as Juventus bowed out on Friday night.
It is the first time Juventus have failed to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League since 2015/16 under Massimiliano Allegri.
Despite winning the league, Sarri has been under pressure as Juventus managed their lowest points total of the last nine title-winning seasons, finishing just one point above Inter Milan.
Jive said in a statement:
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.
