New Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri has been struck down with sickness ahead of the Italian Serie A opener with Parma this weekend.
The former Chelsea manager is down with flu as confirmed via a statement from the official website of Juventus earlier today.
Sarri was named the Juventus manager this summer.
He has a three-year contract at Juventus until the end of the 2021/22 season and the Italian tactician will earn £6.1m at the club.
Juventus have won the last eight league titles in the Italian top flight and a month league title will be the target for Maurizio Sarri and his players.
In addition, Sarri and Juventus are keen to end their long wait for the Champions League title this season.
Juventus are yet to win the trophy in 23 years and counting.
The Italians have reached two finals in the last four years and they are one of the favourites to win this year’s edition alongside the likes of Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona and Premier League champions Manchester City.
Maurizio Sarri spent just one season as the Chelsea manager and it ended with the Europa League title made possible by the 4-1 win over London rivals Arsenal in their final clash last season.
