Juventus, who have previously added superstar Cristiano Ronaldo to their squad, began the season with the goal of winning the Champions League this season.

However, Juventus have only won the Italian League Serie A title under Sarri’s coaching. Sarri could not bring his ‘Sarri ball’ style to the team. He himself had openly admitted this.

Sarri coached Napoli from 2015 to 2018, then coached Chelsea for a year. He joined Juventus from Chelsea in June 2019.

The contract was for three years but has sadly come to an abrupt end.
