Giovanni Martusciello, who is the (temporary) substitute of Sarri on the Juventus bench.

After his career as a player he started as a coach, starting in 2006 in Empoli's youth academy and then, in 2009, in the first team: first as Salvatore Campilongo's assistant, then as Alfredo Aglietti's assistant and finally as Maurizio Sarri's collaborator ; he remains in the Tuscan club also with the subsequent arrival of Marco Giampaolo, returning to the role of technician in the second position.
On 26 May 2016 , following the departure of Giampaolo, he is promoted to technician of the first team. During the season the Empoli is in quiet areas but, after having wasted an advantage of 11 points in the final on the Crotone and being overtaken by the Calabrians on the last day of the championship, ended with a defeat against Palermo, the Tuscan team relegated to Serie B : following this, at the end of the season it is not confirmed by the Empoli president Fabrizio Corsi.
He closes his experience after getting 8 wins, 8 draws and 22 defeats in the league. In the summer of 2017 he joined the staff of Inter as a collaborator of the technician Luciano Spalletti.
