Sarri admits Juventus didn’t use brains as the drop down in Serie A
1 December 2019
Juventus dropped second in the Serie A with a 2-2 draw against Sassuolo with Cristiano Ronaldo netting late to grab a point for the Bianconeri.
Juventus looked to have broken the deadlock and favourites to take the three points with Leonardo Bonucci opener, but Jeremie Boga and Francesco Caputo moved the away side 2-1 with Juve needing a Cristiano Ronaldo penalty to earn a point.
Juventus head coach Maurizio Sarri blamed his side for two points dropped for lack of use of brains
“I spoke to the team for 30 seconds after the game,” Sarri told DAZN.
“It wasn’t a negative performance, the first half the equaliser was a mistake but we opened up far too many spaces, lost the ball cheaply and didn’t use our brains. It went better in the second half, but in the first, we got the feeling there wasn’t enough focus.
” The build-up was slow, we were also wrong about the movements. They took us four or five times with the team too open. We came from two games that took a lot of mental energy, the post-Champions game is always difficult.
