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

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

Juventus was 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.
