Former Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri seems to be in a joking mood especially after Ronaldo help bring Juventus to the top of the table. Dari has joked that his wife still thinks he is “the same d***head as before” despite Juventus sitting top of Serie A at the halfway stage of the season.
The 61-year-old’s Juve side have been awarded the “winter champions” in Italy, with Inter Milan’s blow in their 1-1 draw at home to Atalanta on Saturday. Juventus took advantage of this, allowing them to move two points clear in first place by winning 2-1 away at Roma on Sunday.
Sarri has never won a league title in 24 years as a manager and only won his first trophy in Chelsea’s 4-1 Europa League final triumph over Arsenal last season. When asked about the title of “winter champions” after Sunday’s win at Roma, Sarri replied: “Winter Champions? My wife tells me that I am the same d***head as before,” he said.
“I was twice winter champion with Napoli without ever winning the Scudetto. I came to the conclusion, not to listen to the statistics” he added.
In Sarri’s first season at Napoli, they held a two-point lead over Juventus at the top of Serie A after the first 19 games of the campaign. Since finding his feet again at Juve, who have claimed victory in their last four Serie A outings.
The Italian was only pleased with the first hour of his team’s latest win, however, criticising their “management of the result” away at Roma on Sunday.
