Maurizio Sarri is trying to establish some continuity in his Juventus squad as he wants them to get better.

Juventus have won the Scudetto for the last eight years and is already top of the table. The mere fact that they look to get even better is a frightening prospect, to say the least.

As everyone else in Serie A looks up at the Bianconeri, Sarri is looking for improvements. The former Chelsea boss continuity is his squad is key.

In his pre-match press conference, reported at Football Italia,  Sarri is fully aware of opponent’s Bologna strengths.

He said:

“I like what I’ve seen of Bologna so far.”

“The statistics say they’ve recovered many balls, they shoot a lot on goal and concede only a few shots.”

“They’re a very dangerous team to face.”

Sarri is not resting on his laurels and wants more out of his team.

He added:

“We’re not interested in the table at this stage, we must be aiming to get better and better.”

“What happened at San Siro no longer matters.”

“I want to see my players focused on a difficult match because the international break is always dangerous.”

Sarri is trying to create a team that is tactically flexible and able to handle whatever is thrown at them.

He continued:

“I think this team should be ready for both 4-3-3 and 4-3-1-2. The 4-3-1-2 isn’t a simple formation defensively speaking.”

“Having said that, we’re doing well in that sense, even if we’re not yet perfect.”

“Depending on the players we have available, we’ll choose between a No 10 and 4-3-3.”

He has received postive news from his medical staff about players returning, be Sarri feels that certain changes that were forced have worked out for the best.

Now Juve seeks continuity to their squad.

He said:

“Even with the return of Danilo, I’ll continue to coach Cuadrado as a full-back.”

“I’ve preferred to give my defence continuity.”

Even with a managerial change in Turin, the “Old Lady” of Italian football hasn’t missed a beat with the introduction of Sarri ball.
