Juventus have confirmed that Maurizio Sarri has been diagnosed with pneumonia.

The coach was feeling unwell over the weekend with what seemed like flu symptoms and missed their friendly with Triestina.

The club have now confirmed that the 60-year-old has been diagnosed with pneumonia and will be assessed over the next few days.

“Maurizio Sarri, after having observed rest over the weekend, was at the JTC Continassa today where he coordinated the work of his staff,” read a statement.

“Unfortunately, he could not conduct the training on the field due to the persistence of his flu, which struck him over the course of last week.

“In the late afternoon, he underwent further tests that confirmed he has pneumonia, for which specific therapy has been prescribed.

“The Coach has authorized the club to communicate his state of health.”

It now remains to be seen if Sarri will be fit enough to be on the bench for this weekend’s opening Serie A game against Parma.
