Last Sunday, the era of Maurizio Sarri led Juventus began. The champion of the last eight Scudettos set up a squad to go in search of the Champions League, with the arrival of soccer players such as Gianluigi Buffon, Matthijs de Ligt, Merih Demiral, Cristian Romero (will remain on loan in Genoa), Luca Pellegrini, Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot
Those of Turin were imposed by 2 to 1 thanks to the goals of Gonzalo Higuaín and Cristiano Ronaldo, but those commanded by Mauricio Pochettino reacted on time and won by 3 to 2. However, all the attention was focused on the encounter they had the technical director and the great figure of the team.
After scoring a goal, the Italian strategist decided to replace CR7, who left the field with annoyance and had a brief question with the DT. These images traveled the world and created endless theories.
In the press conference prior to tomorrow’s duel against Inter, the former Chelsea coach clarified what happened with the Portuguese. “I asked him how he felt, because he had to play less minutes than I kept him on the field. He told me he was fine,” Sarri explained.
“In the first part of the season we want to use Cristiano Ronaldo in the same role in which he had his greatest performances; that is, as a forward by left. He is good at making a difference, as he already did during his career. another 10 will have to play accordingly, “said the technical director on the place that former Real Madrid will occupy within the playing field.
Despite rumors of a possible sale to Manchester United or an exchange with PSG (plus Blaise Matuidi and money) for the Neymar record, Sarri showed that Paulo Dybala will occupy an important place in his game scheme. “I could easily play as a kind of ‘fake nine’, but we could also find different solutions. You can play as a midfielder, behind two strikers,” he argued.
Tomorrow, from 8.30 at the Nanjing Olympic Sports Center, Juventus will face Inter. His next friendly will be on August 10, against Atlético Madrid at the Friends Arena in Solna, Stockholm.
