Sarri: 'I was angry and disappointed'
Maurizio Sarri has been sacked as Juventus head coach after just one season in charge

Juventus have sacked head coach Maurizio Sarri a day after being knocked out of the Champions League in the last-16 stage to Lyon, according to Sky in Italy.

The former Chelsea and Napoli boss only took charge of Juventus in June last year, signing a three-year contract at the time, and led the side to a ninth consecutive Serie A title last month.

Sarri, 61, was brought in last summer to replace Max Allegri, who left to take some time away from football.

He was able to keep up the Juventus tradition of winning Serie A, leading the club to their ninth title in a row, but like so many before him he fell short in Europe.

Juventus were dumped out of the Champions League last-16 by Lyon on Friday evening with club president Andrea Agnelli saying they would take a few days to “evaluate” their options.

However, they have now decided to sack Sarri and go in another direction.

Reports claim they have ‘already contacted’ former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino about replacing him
