Appointed on the bench of Lazio Rome, sixth in the last Italian championship, Maurizio Sarri has still not digested his adventure on the bench of the Veille Dame. During the summer transfer window of 2018, Juventus recruits Cristiano Ronaldo, with the goal of winning the Champions League. Unfortunately for the Bianconeri, the adventure ended in the quarterfinals against Ajax Amsterdam (1-1, 1-2).

Maurizio Sarri believes that the management of such a player “is not easy because Ronaldo is a multinational: he has personal interests which must be combined with the interests of the team. It is a difficult situation to manage, honestly, I consider myself much better as a coach than a manager. “

Despite everything, Cristiano Ronaldo helped him a lot to win the title as well as the Italian Supercup. “There are also a lot of positive aspects. When a boy reaches these levels, it is clear that he represents something that can go beyond the institution and the team,” he adds.

He explains it in the Gazetta Dello Sport, “My Scudetto? It was taken for granted. Outside, but I must also say inside the club. We won a Scudetto without celebrating it, everyone had dinner alone. The happy new year would probably have been this: a fourth place and I saw they were celebrating it. “

The reunion between Maurizio Sarri and Juve in the league promises to be hot, as does the derby against AS Roma by José Mourinho.
