Napoli defeated Turin’s Juventus in the final of the Italian Cup. The Juventus head coach spoke about the reasons for the loss. According to the specialist, Cristiano lacks sharpness.
Juventus of Turin lost the Italian Cup final to Napoli in the penalty shootout after a goalless draw – 2: 4. Maurizio Sarri, who was appointed head coach of the Turin team at the start of the season, once again missed the chance to win Juventus’s title.
The 61-year-old specialist commented on the game after the match at the Olympic Stadium in Rome and spoke about the reasons for the failure:
“It’s frustrating for the club, the players and the fans. But we can’t do more right now because we don’t have the speed. We lacked a few players, and we had to make a different choice because we don’t have the optimal level of physical training.
We held the ball well, but we lacked the sharpness to create dangerous moments. I don’t think we lacked purpose because we were focused entirely for 90 minutes, “said Sarim.
The head of the Turinese also spoke about the form of Cristiano Ronaldo, who gave up the second final in a row for the first time in his career. Earlier, Juventus lost to Lazio in the Italian Super Cup (1: 3).
“Ronaldo as well as the others, including Paulo Dybala and Douglas Costa – are in the same shape. He lacks sharpness to do what he can do best of all.
I said nothing to the players after the game. I am angry and frustrated, and therefore it is better to be silent. We will talk tomorrow, “said Juve’s head coach.
