Alberto Zaccheroni has been hired to replace Ciro Ferrara as coach of Juventus.
The Turin team has lost nine of its last 12 games in all competitions and Ferrara had been at risk for weeks.
A 2-1 loss to Inter Milan on Thursday that eliminated Juventus from the Italian Cup pushed management to make the move. That followed a loss to AS Roma in Serie A last weekend, with Juve allowing late goals on both occasions.
In a short note, Juventus did not provide details, but Zaccheroni was expected to sign a contract only through the end of the season, which would still fuel speculation that Juve will go after Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez for the future.
Juventus said Zaccheroni would direct his first training session later Friday.
