Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri has stated that the Bianconeri must stop showboating and try to attain perfection in their style of play. The Italian was in a rather bittersweet mood following his side’s 2-1 win over Cagliari.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Miralem Pjanic made sure Juventus bagged another three points, maintaining their lead at the top of the table.
“It was a good game, tainted by some mistakes,” Sarri said.
“The boundary between dribbling in a productive way and becoming a bit superficial, however, is thin: for 40 minutes we did it well, for five minutes incorrectly. We have to dribble with substance and not just for the sake of it.”
“We must manage the result and energy levels. We have to secure games and in the second half, we had the chance to do so.”
“I told the lads we mustn’t try to control a game, sit on a lead or be comfortable because otherwise, we leave ourselves in these risky situations to the very end.”
“The sensation is that we moved the ball quicker after the break and Bologna were getting there a fraction of a second later. I don’t know if that’s because we did better or they were tired, having worked so hard in the first half to contain us.”
