Breaking: Juventus Sacks Maurizio Sarri As Its Coach



Maurizio Sarri has been sacked on Saturday as the head coach of the Italian giant club, Juventus.

The tactician was shown the exit door after Friday’s Champions League last-16 loss to French Club, Lyon which dumped them out of this years’ European elite competition.

As previously reported by Naija News, Juve recorded a 2-1 victory against French professional football club, Lyon, on August 7 to end the quarter-final stage with a 2-2 aggregate score but Lyon qualified for the next stage of the competition based on away goal advantage.

It is the first time Juventus have failed to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League since 2015/16 under Massimiliano Allegri.

The Champions League loss is believed to be responsible for Sarri’s sack who only took charge of the club in June last year.

He signed a three-year contract at the time, and led the side to a ninth consecutive Serie A title last month.
