Maurizio Sarri has lost his job as manager of Juventus after their exit from the Champions League at the hands of Lyon on Friday night.
Juventus made the announcement in a statement via the club’s official website on Saturday.
Juventus was eliminated from the Champions League last-16 second leg tie on an away goal rule against Lyon after a 2-2 draw aggregate.
Lyon won the first leg 1-0 in France back in February, while Juventus won the second leg 2-1 in Turin, thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo’s brace.
The statement reads: “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 writing a new page in Juventus history with the victory of the ninth consecutive Scudetto, the culmination of a personal journey that led him to climb all the categories of Italian football.”
Meanwhile, Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi is among the front-runners to replace Sarri after guiding his team to fourth in the table and Champions League qualification for the first time in 13 years.
