Reports: Juventus sack Sarri

Reports are growing that Maurizio Sarri’s time at Juventus is up, with a crisis meeting called, Mauricio Pochettino, Zinedine Zidane and Simone Inzaghi contacted.

Worst Juve trophy haul in eight years

For the first time since Antonio Conte’s debut campaign in 2011-12, Juventus have finished the season with just one trophy.

The Bianconeri made history with a ninth consecutive Serie A title, but the rest of the 2019-20 term will go down as a failure.

They lost the Italian Supercup clash with Lazio 3-1 in December, then the Coppa Italia Final to Napoli on penalties in June.

Last night’s Champions League exit at the hands of Olympique Lyonnais cut their European participation short at the Round of 16 stage.

De Ligt: 'I need shoulder surgery'

Matthijs de Ligt confirms he can finally ‘have that shoulder surgery’ after Juventus were knocked out of the Champions League by Olympique Lyonnais.

The Bianconeri were unable to overturn the 1-0 first leg defeat, as with a 2-1 win in Turin last night, they were eliminated on away goals.

That means the 2019-20 season is over for Juve and De Ligt, who has been postponing an operation practically since November.

Zidane, Pochettino or Inzaghi for Juve?

Juve's Champions League curse continues

Juventus failed in Europe yet again, this time eliminated by a tactically-astute Lyon, but Elio Salerno saw problems that extend far beyond just Maurizio Sarri.

It was another night of misery in the Champions League for Juventus, as The Old Lady were again sent packing in Europe’s elite football competition. The feeling of disappointment will be overwhelming for Juventini, but what will perhaps hurt the most is that this latest elimination is not at all surprising.

Sarri: 'I expected less from Juventus'

Maurizio Sarri surprisingly said he ‘expected less’ from Juventus after their Champions League exit to Lyon. ‘I thought we put in a great performance this evening.’

The Bianconeri had lost the first leg 1-0 in France back in February and that was ultimately too big an obstacle to overcome.

Garcia: 'My best moment so far'

Olympique Lyonnais coach Rudi Garcia said knocking out Juventus at the Allianz Stadium was ‘one of the most satisfying moments’ in his career so far.

The visitors arrived with a 1-0 advantage from Groupama Stadium in February and when Memphis Depay scored a penalty after 12 minutes, Juventus needed three goals to turn the game around.
