Maurizio Sarri has been relieved of his duties at Juventus after he crashed out of the champions league round of 16 at the hands of Lyon.
The Italian accountant who has been in charge of the old lady for just one season has been sacked after his hit and miss season that saw him lose a final to Napoli and crash out to Lyon in the round of 16.
Maurizio Sarri who earlier blamed the loss to Lyon to curse has been sent packing and Juventus is now looking for a replacement.
The Italian who has had spells at Napoli and Chelsea hit out at the Juventus board by telling them not to act like “amateurs” when his team loses the tie against Lyon but it seems his pleas fell on deaf ears as he was sacked the morning after his comments.
“I don’t think my future is riding on this game,” said Sarri in quotes reported by the BBC.He went ahead and said the board putting his job on the line because the Lyon loss would make them look like Amateurs “Thinking this way you make the club directors look like amateurs.” “I think I’m dealing with high-level directors. They will decide whether to continue or to change. But it doesn’t depend on a single game.”
Juventus will now be looking into options of appointing a new manager amd they will weigh between bringing back Masmilliano Allegri or appoint former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino
