Juve confirm coach’s departure

Juventus coach Didier Deschamps has quit after just one season despite leading the fallen Italian giants back to the top flight, the club confirmed on Saturday.

Deschamps took charge of the team for the home win over Mantova amid intense speculation that he had resigned after a meeting with club officials late on Friday.

The club at first denied that the Frenchman had officially quit but his departure was confirmed following the 2-0 win, which assured Juventus of the Serie B championship.

“Juventus and Didier Deschamps announce that they have mutually cancelled their contract, which had brought satisfaction, joy and success to both sides,” a club statement said.

Juventus were demoted from Serie A last year in Italy’s match-fixing scandal but have made an immediate return under Deschamps despite a nine-point deduction.

Media reports have consistently linked other managers to the post with former Juventus and Italy coach Marcello Lippi among those mentioned.
