Juve axe falls on Ranieri

18 May 2009 - 16:43:25

Juventus have sacked coach Claudio Ranieri following a run of seven Serie A games without a victory and placed former defender Ciro Ferrara in charge.

The Turin club saw their outside chances of winning the Scudetto this season ended by a winless run stretching back to March in the league.

However, Ranieri was axed after Sunday's 2-2 home draw with Atalanta left Juve clinging on to the last automatic Champions League place by just one point from Fiorentina.

The former Chelsea boss took over at the Stadio Olimpico in 2007 but had also failed to make an impact in Europe.

This season they lost in the first knockout round of the Champions League to Chelsea.

Juve confirmed Ranieri's departure in a brief statement which also revealed that Ferrara would be in charge for the final two games of the season.
