Italian football club, Juventus, have fired tactician, Maurizio Sarri, as head coach after a closed door meeting today.
A statement is expected but it is believed that his fate was sealed following the club’s failure to progress beyond the UEFA Champions League round of 16.
Despite a 2-1 victory over Lyon, the Old Lady failed to qualify, adding to a string of losses in the Serie A to put the final nail to Sarri’s coffin as manager of the club.
Speculation is rife that Simone Inzaghi has been earmarked to replace him, although rumours had already begun to make the rounds that Inter Milan boss, Antonio Conte, will jump ship and retake the job where he led Juve to the first three of what has now become nine straight league titles.
