Overtaking Inter Milan at this stage means little, says Sarri

Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri has said that the Bianconeri’s win over rivals Inter Milan means little at this early stage in the season. The Old Lady won an intense clash against their rivals with a 2-1 scoreline.

Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala were on the scoresheet, with the former coming on late to score the winner in the game.

“Overtaking (Inter) at this time has little meaning. What matters is the performance and character shown against a strong team, which had always won up to this moment,” Sarri told Juve’s website.

“We entered the game with a good approach, and we deserved to win.”

“From this point of view, we have already taken important steps.”

Sarri also acknowledged that his team needed to work more on dominating their opponents with regards to possession of the ball.

“What we need to work on is dominating the match, having territorial supremacy, pressing better and more, taking away any attacking initiative from the opposition so that we can spend our whole time in the opposition half.”

“We have room for improvement, we are not 100 per cent yet, but the team is strong so we can get the results.”

Juventus currently sit atop the Serie A table with their win over Inter Milan.
