During his very first interview with Juventus, Maurizio Sarri spoke about the club’s main objectives for the upcoming Serie A season.
Now that he is the new Juventus coach, Maurizio Sarri can finally start focusing on the main objectives for the new season.
The biggest target is clear, the Old Lady has to compete to win the UEFA Champions League having Cristiano Ronaldo and him at the helm.
However, Maurizio reckons that the club also needs to remain competitive in Serie A because the tournament is getting a proper boost next season.
Sarri knows that Ronaldo’s arrival changed the game in Italian football, the rest of the clubs are trying to compete for the title against the dominant squad in the country.
“Juventus’ only goal is to win,” Sarri told the club’s official website.
“When you wake up in the morning representing this club, that’s all that matters.”
“This club has already won a lot. It will be difficult to repeat the results of the last five years [under Allegri]. We must try to forget that responsibility and have fun.”
“With [Allegri], Juve were very competitive,” he added.
“They knew how to show unity in difficult moments [in matches]. The style of play can change a bit, but we can’t lose the 99 percent of good things that have been present in the way that Juventus play.”
“It will be an exciting league campaign,” continued Sarri.
“We will have the return of Antonio Conte to an important team [Inter], [Marco] Giampolo’s arrival at an elite club [AC Milan].”
“[Carlo] Ancelotti is still there [at Napoli], and Paulo Fonseca has arrived, a coach with a lot of quality.”At Sassuolo they’ve got [Roberto] De Zerbi, a young man with tonnes of talent.”
