Juventus received some financial relief on Wednesday, after Maurizio Sarri was named as the new manager at Lazio.
The Bianconeri sacked the former Chelsea boss last summer after one season at the helm in Turin.
While he may have been sacked, he was technically still being employed by the club until he finds a new job.
The Old Lady negotiated with him to end his contract, but they were not successful and he has remained on their payroll since that time.
He has a year left on his Juventus contract, but they will be saved from paying him, as he is now the new Lazio boss.
The Laziali has announced his appointment officially citing a Tweet from the clubs’ official Twitter page, a cigar, which is apparently an indication that he is the new coach.
Fabrizio Romano, the reliable Italian football journalist, has also confirmed the news.
The former Napoli boss is highly rated in Italy after winning the Europa League with Chelsea and Serie A with Juventus.
