Deschamps resigns as Juve manager

26 May 2007 19:01

ROME (AFP) - Didier Deschamps has resigned as coach of Juventus, the Turin club confirmed on Saturday.

The 38-year-old Frenchman, who has taken Juve back to Serie A after one season in Italy's second division, steps down with one year left on his contract.

In a statement Juventus explained: "The manager and the club, noting that conditions no longer exist for a satisfactory mutual relationship, have decided to part company in an amical manner."

It added that Deschamps had brought "satisfaction, joy and success."

The writing was on the wall when for the first time this season Deschamps failed to appear at the traditional post match press conference following Juve's 2-0 win over Mantua which saw them clinch the second division title with two games to go.

Deschamps, a former Juve player, had said on Friday that he hoped to have his future sorted out next week.

France's 1998 World Cup winning captain is said to have fallen out with the club's management over concerns about losing key players and negotiations over a new contract.

Last summer Juventus were demoted from Serie A and given a nine-point handicap in Serie B for their role in the Italian match-fixing scandal.

Deschamps' resignation comes 24 hours after Gerard Houllier announced he was standing down at six time French champions Lyon.
