Juventus sack the Scudetto winner for the second year running, but Maurizio Sarri’s contract means this decision will cost €20m.
After Max Allegri was dismissed last year, despite becoming the first coach to secure five consecutive Serie A titles, Sarri has also been officially axed this afternoon.
While Allegri still had one year left on his contract and was therefore paid to take a Sabbatical last term, the situation is different for Sarri.
The tactician is tied down to Juve until June 2022, earning a salary worth €5.5m per season net.
If the contract is not terminated by mutual consent early, then Juve must pay €11m net in Sarri’s wages, which comes to €20.3m gross.
His whole staff was also sacked as part of the latest revolution in Turin.
