Juventus chief Paratici: Sarri has been sacked even before Lyon game

Juventus director Fabio Paratici says the board chose to sack coach Maurizio Sarri before their Champions League elimination by Lyon.

Andrea Pirlo was named new head coach of Juve on Saturday.

"We had already made our evaluations before the Lyon result. We had already said, one game does not decide the future of a coach. Our evaluations were based on the whole season and not just a single match," Paratici told Sky Sport Italia.

“The decision for Pirlo was very natural, in the Juventus style, because he is someone who as we said just over a week ago played with us, has always been in contact with everyone here and it felt natural.

“We also believe he is destined for greatness. He was as a player and we think with confidence he can do the same as a coach.

“Andrea has in his mind the same approach to coaching as he does when he played. That's football of great quality and hard work. He wants to propose a certain type of football, the kind European teams are generally trying to follow, and he was very convincing in his explanation to us.

“The person is often more important than the professional, so we had no doubts on Pirlo as a person."
