Juventus manager, Maurizio Sarri has warned his players that they cannot afford to throw away points like they did in yesterday’s 2-1 Serie A defeat to Hellas Verona.
Sarri believes the league leaders are already used to winning and it should remain that way if they still want to be a force to be reckon with in Italian football.
According to him, Juventus must avoid being complacent in the current competitive Serie A, else they might hand over the league title to another club.
He added that his boys should learn the lesson from their recent defeat and rise to their full potential in upcoming matches.
His words, “This team has been accustomed to winning comfortably over recent years and we need to get it into our heads that we cannot afford to waste points,”
“Hopefully we’ll learn the lesson, because we have been talking about it for quite a while. It’s difficult, because the team trains well but then can’t rise to its full potential during matches. We have to find a resolution to this.
“The mind is most important. If that’s not engaged then you aren’t going to be on the mark tactically. Similarly, if your mind is also not 100 per cent engaged, then the physical stuff won’t follow either.
“We need to realise that winning cannot to be taken for granted. We must work harder, get dirty when we need to and not relax.”
