Sarri Blasts Juventus Stars’ Attitude After Surprise Defeat At Verona
Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri has blasted his side’s attitude following their surprise 2-1 defeat at Hellas Verona.
Juve looked on track for the three points when Cristiano Ronaldo netted in his 10th straight league game – one short of the Serie A record – in the 65th minute.
But two goals in the space of 10 minutes turned the game on its head.
Ex-Liverpool striker Fabio Borini equalised before Giampaolo Pazzini’s late penalty completed the turnaround.
The Old Lady have now lost two of their last three league meetings, while they’ve been defeated in three of their past five away fixtures in the Italian top-flight.
And Sarri was furious with how the champions let things slip.
“Evidently we have different performances and results when comparing home form to away,” said the ex-Chelsea boss post-game.
“It was a difficult
game, we knew it would be and that Verona would make us suffer early on.
“We held out well, hit the woodwork twice, took the lead, but cannot drop points with such soft errors.
“The first goal was inexplicable, if we want Juventus to win games, we cannot keep making errors caused by a superficial attitude.
“Verona deserve absolute credit, as they were aggressive from start to finish and we knew they would be.
“We were aware that it was important to hold out for the opening 25 minutes, that we’d then have our chances.
“We did all that, but then threw the points away with superficiality and it’s a habit we absolutely need to get rid of.”
