Maurizio Sarri won with Juventus a ninth straight Series A title but they were knocked out last night by Lyon in the Champions League round of 16 on away goals rules.

Sarri, 61, was appointed manager of Juventus on a three-year deal last summer after he departed Premier League Club Chelsea.

Juventus finished one point above second placed Inter Milan after losing three of their last four final games.

They were also beaten by Napoli in the Coppa Italia final after football games resumed in Italy.

Juventus have won the European Cup/Champions League twice, but they have not won the competition since 1996.

Former Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri, replaced Massimiliano Allegri in June 2019.

Juventus issued a statement thanking Sarri for “having written a new page in Juventus’ history”, adding that it was “the culmination of a personal journey that led him to climb all the divisions of Italian football”.
