Despite the overall victory in Serie A, Juventus did not have a very good season. The Old Lady then also focused on winning the Champions League, but it was eliminated by Olympique Lyon on Friday.
Juventus had to clear a 1-0 deficit after the first game in France. It won the return game 2-1, but the away goals were in favor of Lyon. No more Champions League for Juventus, which has now lost all confidence in trainer Maurizio Sarri, who had been under fire in Turin for a long time. Various Italian media are therefore crying out for Sarri’s dismissal. Tuttosport headlined for example: “Sarri out”.
Sarri’s faded way of playing in particular causes a lot of criticism, and we previously made the analysis that Juventus was anything but a convincing champion in the Calcio. The Gazetta dello Sport knows that Juve’s club management already has two big candidates in mind to succeed Sarri. In Turin, they would think of Simone Inzaghi and Zinedine Zidane to lead the club next season.
