Juventus need to improve, says Sarri

Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri has said that the Bianconeri still need to improve in their style of play, following their 2-1 victory against Brescia on the weekend. The Old Lady clawed back from a 1-0 deficit, thanks to a John Chancellor own goal and a sublime Miralem Pjanic strike.

Juventus also climbed to the top of the table, two points above Inter, who have a game to spare.

“We improved our passing with the 4-3-1-2 formation played. I saw some steps forward in the chances created,” Sarri said.

“We need to improve the defence. Which formation will we use? We can use both solutions. We struggle with offensive wingers at this time while we have a lot of quality midfielders so it seemed obvious to try this formation.”

“Then, if a month from now the wingers find their form, we can evaluate the options, but the team must be prepared with both formations.”

Asked about the performances of defender Matthijs de Ligt, a €75million close-season arrival, Sarri added: “He’s improving a lot, he needs time.”

Sarri was impressed with the performance of out-of-favour attacker Paulo Dybala, who played a part in both goals for his team

“Dybala had a good match both offensively and defensively,” he said.

“He was excellent with quick passes and he left the pitch hurting. We hope he can recuperate for the next game [SPAL on Saturday].”
