Official: Paratici leaves Juventus

Juventus has confirmed that it has parted ways with sporting director Fabio Paratici.

The meeting held between the board of the club resulted in the departure of the Italian director.

With his departure, Federico Cherubini will take over the responsibilities of sports director.

Juventus will appreciate a poor season on and off the field and the sporting director’s contract expires this summer, which the Bianconeri were reluctant to pursue.

La Repubblica reports that the club will continue to discuss the future of coach Andrea Pirlo, and rumors in Italy suggest that Massimiliano Allegri is set for a return to the team.

With the departure of Paratici, the former coach will be happy to return, and the newspaper reveals that Juventus does not intend to host Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane.
