Andrea Pirlo replaces Maurizio Sarri as Juventus manager

Cristiano Ronaldo trains with Juventus teammates ahead of Champions League clash with Lyon - in pictures

The interview comes following Juve's 2:1 win over Lyon on Friday, which was not enough to help the Italian club reach the Champions League quarter-finals due to the away goals rule.

"Ronaldo is a pillar of Juventus", said Juventus president Andrea Agnelli.

Sarri, 61, took over on a three-year deal last season promising a revolution on the pitch after leading Chelsea to the Europa League trophy.

Cristiano Ronaldo seemed to be angered and frustrated with the playstyle Sarri had incorporated into the club, almost leaving for PSG in February and also looking visibly frustrated after the loss to Lyon in the Champions League.

The stakes were high for Juventus who spent big to bolster their supporting cast around five-time Ballon d'Or victor Ronaldo.

Pirlo has never managed before either at youth or senior level.

Juve thanked Sarri for his service in a brief statement on the club's website.

He also won two Champions Leagues and two league titles with Milan during his 22-year playing career.

There had been speculation that former Juve boss Max Allegri would be appointed or Spurs' former manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Ronaldo took to Instagram following the conclusion of Juventus' season, urging the team to come back stronger next term.

Juve were rarely brilliant and often disappointing, losing in two finals, the Italian Cup and the Italian Super Cup. Their tally of 83 points in Serie A this season was the lowest of their nine-season run of titles.

Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo scores his side's second goal during the Champions League rmatch against Lyon.

They have been runners-up seven times, including twice in the last five years. Even at the age of 35, Ronaldo is unstoppable.
