After securing yet another domestic title, Italian giants Juventus were in the hunt for another guy to pull their strings, as they feel like they needed to step up in their pursuit for a European trophy.
Maurizio Sarri has just been appointed as Massimiliano Allegri's replacement at Juventus and it didn't take him long to compliment his newest Star Cristiano Ronaldo, lauding his career and claiming he's going to do whatever it takes to help him break all kinds of records.
"At Chelsea, I coached some very strong players, but training Cristiano will be yet another step forward. I'd like to help him break some new records. I expect to wake up every morning studying how to win games. Winning continuously is always hard and Juventus have an obligation to always win, but with the awareness of the difficulty. You have to have clear ideas on two or three players who can make a real difference for the team and then give them an environment to truly express themselves. Then the formation is dictated by that," Sarri told the media.
After being in the hot seat throughout most of his tenure in charge of the Blues, Sarri didn't hesitate and took the first chance he got to come back to the Serie A, where he had already thrived with Napoli. Therefore, he looked quite thankful with the Bianconeri for giving him such a huge opportunity:
“Juve are the best Italian club right now and offered me a chance to return to Italy. It's the crowning achievement of a long career.“I have never seen so much determination on the part of a club to hire a coach. They had a great attitude which convinced me, they were very strong feelings. It's been a long journey for me made up of gradual steps. I'm happy to be at the most important team in Italy and this is a further step forward after the experience at Chelsea. For all the clubs I've been at I gave 110% and it will be the same here," he concluded.
Juventus are bound to complete several signings and make a huge splash in this upcoming transfer window, and they hope Sarri's appointment could lift them past their competition in the UEFA Champions League.
