Juventus have confirmed they have parted ways with coach Luigi Delneri, with Siena boss Antonio Conte expected to be named as his replacement.

The club revealed the news on their official website on Tuesday, after a disappointing Serie A campaign that saw them finish in seventh place.

The news of Delneri’s departure was no surprise, with the 60-year-old revealing last week that he would not be in the job next season, but Tuesday’s statement made it official.

“Juventus Football Club announce that Luigi Delneri will not be the coach for season 2011-2012,” the statement read.

“President Andrea Agnelli, the directors and the team would like to thank him for his hard work and wish him a successful professional future.”

Delneri’s departure means Juventus are free to appoint club legend Conte, who made over 300 appearances as a player for the Turin side – claiming five league titles and one Champions League trophy.

Formerly in charge at Arezzo, Bari and Atalanta, the 41-year-old most recently guided Siena to second place in Serie B, assuring them promotion to the top flight for the 2011-12 campaign.
