Maurizio Sarri

Giorgio Chiellini speaks on the impact of Maurizio Sarri

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini has said that Maurizio Sarri has different characteristics when compared to former coach Max Allegri and the team are trying their best to adapt to the demands of the new head coach. The Bianconeri have made multiple new signings during the summer and Matthijs de Ligt has been the most-profile capture after the switch from Ajax.

Speaking to reporters, Chiellini said that the players are adjusting to the change in tactics under Sarri and the focus is on attaining maximum efficiency ahead of the new league season, he told: “Every coach has his own characteristics, we have had Conte and Allegri in recent years, Sarri is different again. There is maximum availability on our part, and the whole team is trying to incorporate the coach's requests as soon as possible. We are still work in progress, this pre-season has been too long, I still don't understand why we are the only ones in Europe starting at the end of August. From next week we will begin to increase our head and body rhythms.”
