Sarri has been relieved of coaching Juventus

Juventus have confirmed Maurizio Sarri has been sacked following the club’s failure to progress beyond the last 16 of the Champions League.

The decision to dispense with Sarri was taken in the aftermath of the club’s surprising elimination to Lyon, Juve going out on away goals despite a 2-1 victory in Turin on Friday.

Failure to progress in Europe has led to the former Napoli and Chelsea boss losing his job after a solitary season in charge, despite winning the Serie A title.
