"Juventus Football Club announced that Maurizio Sarri has been relieved of his post as coach of the first team" reads the statement.
The Italian manager won the Serie A title with a match left to play but on the final day of the season, the league ended with just 1 point at the top. If the league had remained a match, we could have seen Inter Milan give Juventus a scare.
The icing on the cake came when they were eliminated from the Champions League by Lyon on Friday night. In the match, except for Ronaldo's brilliance, there was nothing spectacular about the Old lady's display. It was just passing for the sake of it, crossing for the sake of it, passes were not sticky. They were firing blanks at the opponent.
His position at the club became shaky when he lost the Italian Supercup to Lazio, then Coppa Italia final to Napoli in June. Last night's loss was the final straw that saw him out of the club.
The 61-year old manager was in-charge for a season overseeing 51 competitive matches; 24 victories, 8 draws and 9 losses, during which his team scored 100 goals and conceded 55.A total of 83 points from Serie A season.
