Juventus Sack Sarri After Elimination From Champions League

Juventus, on Saturday, sacked their manager, Maurizio Sarri, after their elimination from the Champions League at the hands of Lyon on Friday night.

The club made the announcement in a statement via the club’s official website on Saturday.

The Serie A giants were eliminated from the Champions League last-16 second leg tie on an away goal rule against Lyon after a 2-2 draw aggregate.

Lyon won the first leg 1-0 in France back in February, while Juventus won the second leg 2-1 in Turin, thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo’s brace.

 “Juventus Football Club announces that Maurizio Sarri has been relieved of his post as coach of the First Team.

“The club would like to thank the coach for writing a new page in Juventus history with the victory of the ninth consecutive Scudetto, the culmination of a personal journey that led him to climb all the categories of Italian football,” the statement reads.

Meanwhile, It has been revealed that Juventus will pay Sarri €20million in compensation for sacking the Scudetto winner in a second year running, according to Football Italia.

The former Chelsea coach is tied down to Juventus until June 2022, earning a salary worth €5.5million per season.

If the contract is not terminated by mutual consent early, then the Old Lady must pay €11million net in Sarri’s wages, which comes to €20.3million gross.

Sarri’s whole staff were also sacked as part of the latest revolution in Juventus.
