Juventus have sacked its manager, Maurizio Sarri after just one year in charge, following Champions League defeat by Lyon.
Sarri came into the round-of-16 second leg under growing pressure over his tactics, style of play and his relationships with individual players, despite recently winning the Serie A title.
The 61years-old was brought in last summer to replace Max Allegri, who left to take some time away from football.
Maurizio Sarri 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, reports are now saying that they have decided to sack Sarri and go in another direction.
Meanwhile, former Juventus midfielder Zinedine Zidane is being linked to his old club. Zidane’s Real Madrid side were knocked out of the Champions League as well on Friday night but after the match Zidane said he will stay in Spain until it’s taken out of his hands.
“I am here. I am the Real Madrid coach unless something happens.” The Frenchman said after the defeat to Manchester City.
Mauricio Pochettino, who has been out of work since being sacked by Tottenham Hotspur in the autumn, is also being mentioned as a possible option.
Aside from those two reports are also saying that the club will consider Lazio boss Simone Inzaghi, Italian national team manager Roberto Mancini and the club’s former midfielder Andrea Pirlo, who was recently hired as the team’s U-23 coach.
