Gigi del Neri has announced he is leaving Juventus.
The coach has confirmed he will be replaced at the end of the season.
â€śThere will be a new Coach at Juventus next season,â€ť declared Del Neri.
â€śThe club informed me of its decision on Wednesday. I accept this choice, even if Iâ€™d do everything again.
â€śJuve did not have the time to wait for change and gradual improvement. As for me, if a door closes behind me then another can open up. I was proud to be given the Juventus job initially, which is why I gave up on the Champions League with Sampdoria.
â€śI was happy with the arrival of Fabio Quagliarella and Alberto Aquilani, the maturation of Paolo De Ceglie and Vincenzo Iaquintaâ€™s form. Then the collapse in January changed the season. Injuries affected everything.
â€śThe club asked me to get the best results we could and I told them the Scudetto was a big ask, especially after so many changes. I did understand that a club like Juve must always push to win.â€ť
Del Neri also revealed this was effectively a dismissal and certainly not a resignation.
â€śPersonally, I wouldâ€™ve confirmed myself for next season, especially as I have a contract for another 12 months.
â€śIn any case, I can never consider this experience to be a personal defeat. The Bianconeri bench helped me to mature as a Coach.
â€śThe lads were splendid and very easy to lead. I discovered a new environment that helped me to grow. I donâ€™t have to prove anything to anyone, so life goes on.â€ť
