Disappointment was sweeping over the Juventus players, because they failed to take advantage of the opportunity to widen the gap with Inter Milan. The opportunity was present when they travel to the headquarters of Naples, where Bianconneri surrendered with a final score of 1-2. But interestingly, coach Maurizio Sarri actually feels happy with the defeat, why?
Juventus travel to the San Paolo Stadium to face Napoli in the 21st Italian Serie A Giornata, Monday morning (27/01). In that match, Bianconneri left behind two goals, one of which was printed Lorenzo Insigne. Cristiano Ronaldo could reduce the lag, unfortunately the score did not change until the game ended, Napoli won 1-2.
It’s only natural that coach Maurizio Sarri is disappointed, because his team failed to win the match. Though they have the opportunity to widen the distance with the second-ranked occupant, Inter Milan, who in Week 21 only drew against Cagliari and earned just one point.
But Sarri’s reaction was just the opposite. The former Chelsea tactician felt happy. Not happy because of the defeat suffered by Juventus, but happy because Napoli finally won after a series of negative results. Sarri felt he still had a strong bond with the Napoli city club.
“I am happy with the children, because I will always be attached to them. If you have to lose, I think I better feel here to help Napoli get out of the current problem. “I would be happier if they start winning next week, of course,” Sarri said after the match as reported by Sky Sport Italia.
As informaso, Sarri has indeed coached Napoli for more or less three seasons. In the club nicknamed Il Partenopei that’s the name raised, because it is considered to carry a different style of football with Italian clubs in general. This reason also made Sarri recruited Chelsea to replace Antonio Conte last season.
While on the one hand, Napoli continues to experience bad luck. Four of his five matches in the Serie A event before meeting with Juventus ended in defeat. In fact, due to the series of bad results, Gennaro Gattuso’s troops had sat outside the top 10 standings.
