“He just finished an excellent season on Chelsea’s bench, finishing third in the Premier League and winning the Europa League,” the club said in a statement.
“Having lifted his first continental trophy, Mauricio Sari is now back in Italy, where he has worked throughout his career, except, of course, the English experience that has just ended. From today, over the next three years (until June 30, 2022), he will lead Juventus. ”
Chelsea and Juventus have agreed “to agree on early termination of Mauricio Sari’s two-year contract with Chelsea at his request.”
