Is it possible that Miralem Pjanic has become Maurizio Sarri’s go-to guy ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo?
However, Maurizio Sarri appears to have had a serious change of heart and become the Bosnian international’s biggest fan.
“We missed his quality, of course.”
“Also his rhythm, because he moves the ball fast and our play becomes quicker as a result.”
Statistically, last season was not bad at all for Pjanic and that left many to wonder why Sarri was so against him.
The importance of Miralem Pjanić to Juventus this season:
2nd Most Games 👕
Most Touches 👞
Most Passes Completed ✅
Highest Pass Accuracy 🎯
Most Chances Created 🗝️

The player himself is far happier under Sarri than he was under Allegri, here is why:
“Playing under Allegri was completely different, as we immediately looked to get the ball wide,” he explained.
“Now, it’s different. My team-mates always look for me and I like that.
Ronaldo is still the Bianconeri’s leading scorer, and without him, they struggle.
But without Miralem Pjanic pulling the strings in the center of the field, Juve and Sarriball are nonexistent.
Pjanic: "In football & in Sarri's team, my role is important, I will definitely enjoy it. The 150 passes are a goal I want to achieve, but it doesn't matter if its 150 or 120….we'll play with the ball on the ground, 1-2 touches. I can't wait to start." [GdS] pic.twitter.com/3k8Eg6UY3X
