Maurizio Sarri says he will fully assess his Juventus squad before deciding what kind of system to implement going forward. Sarri came in for criticism from Chelsea fans, despite winning the Europa League, who were not happy with his style of play that has been labelled ‘Sarri-ball’.
The former Napoli boss addressed the Italian media for the first time as Juve manager on Thursday morning, with the 60-year-old asked about what sort of approach fans should expect. “You can’t just start with a system and send players away or take new ones,” Sarria said at a press conference broadcast by Juventus club media.
“We need to have very clear ideas on the players that can make the difference, and then put them in a condition to make the difference. “The very first step is to study the characteristics of every single player in order to discuss and share, then adapt the module to the players who can really make the difference. “In the last year (at Chelsea), we had 4-3-3, before then for three years (at Napoli) I had 4-3-2-1, other systems as well.”
