SIGHTS ON SASSUOLO
"Sassuolo are a side that plays football very well, they have good players with technical skills. Alessio Dionisi is proving to be a good coach in his first experience in Serie A. He did very well at Empoli and winning is not easy. Tomorrow is an important match for us, the boys know that we have to win. The points that we lost at the beginning of the season don't allow us to have large margins of error. Tomorrow, we will have to take to the field to play a balanced match, both from a technical and physical point of view."
"Mattia Perin, Matthijs de Ligt, Paulo Dybala and Federico Chiesa will all play. Adrien Rabiot has recovered, whilst we've lost Federico Bernardeschi and Moise Kean. Manuel Locatelli and Arthur are capable of forming a midfield-coupling, perhaps with Arthur more moved from a box-to-box role to more of a deep-lying playmaker's one. Federico Chiesa is a player of an international level, he is a staple of Juventus."
KAIO JORGE'S GROWTH
"Kaio Jorge probably won't play from the beginning tomorrow, but he's already showing to be a technically good player. He has personality, he proved it both in the final minutes of the derby and in the San Siro on Sunday. After the injury he has worked well and is improving, he can go on to have an excellent career, he's smart and he knows how to play football."
THE DRAW AT SAN SIRO
"From a physical point of view: the game against Inter saw us end the match in crescendo. We played a very important match against Inter. Dejan Kulusevski had a good game for 60 minutes and he had to play like this, marking Marcelo Brozovic tightly. Over the last period there has been a general growth on the part of everyone and this allows me to make changes, now the team suffers less than before. There are good prospects for the future."
