Milan: Juventus have continued to rebuild for the future after a dreadful season by parting company with director Roberto Bettega after just five months, the Serie A club said in a statement.

Bettega was a key Juve director when the club bossed Italian soccer in the first half of the last decade but left in the wake of their 2006 match-fixing demotion only to return in late December.

However, his presence could not stop Juve sliding down to seventh and this month`s arrivals of former Sampdoria coach Luigi Del Neri and ex-Samp sporting director Beppe Marotta have spelt the end of his second short stint with the Turin club.
