Gigi Delneri Quits Juventus, Will Leave After Final Match On Sunday

The rumors have been swirling for weeks, but Gigi Delneri has now come out and said what everyone already knew: the match against Napoli will be his last as manager of Juventus:

Juventus will change coach, I have been informed of this. I wish good luck to whoever will follow me but I do not know who he is

The Old Lady have had a difficult time of it this season, missing out on the Champions League positions and almost certainly having no real chance at a Europa League spot, either. Injuries took their toll on the side, who lacked a certain coherency for most of Delneri's first season in charge.

While Delneri had another season left on his contract, one that could have been used to see exactly what he might do with a fitter, firmer squad, Juventus won't take that chance. Strongly linked with Napoli's Walter Mazzarri over the last month, it is now widely believed that the next coach will be Antonio Conte, the former Juventus star who lead Siena up to Serie A this season.
