Italian Seria A champions, Juventus Football Club, have relieved their head coach, Maurizio Sarri, of his duties following Friday’s UEFA Champions League failure.
In a club statement Saturday afternoon, the club thanked Sarri for winning the club’s ninth consecutive league title.
“Juventus Football Club announces that Maurizio Sarri has been relieved of his post as coach of the First Team,” the statement said.
“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.”
Sarri spent just one season at Juventus after signing from English Premier League side, Chelsea, in the summer of 2019.
Despite guiding Juventus to a ninth straight Serie A title, the Italian struggled to impose his famous ‘Sarriball’ style on the squad.
They were knocked out of the Champions League by Lyon at the last-16 stage on Friday.
Juve won 2-1 in Turin but the French side progressed on away goals.
