Delneri to leave Juventus after final match

Delneri to leave Juventus after final match

Juventus coach Luigi Delneri says the club has told him he will be replaced following the final match of the season.

Delneri only took over in 2010 after leading Sampdoria to the Champions League, but he has failed to revive Juve's fortunes and speculation about his future has been rife.

With only a match against Napoli left to play on Sunday, Juventus needs either Roma or Lazio to slip up to qualify for the Europa League after missing out on the Champions League places.

Delneri said Saturday he was ''told on Wednesday that the club would be changing coach.''
