Recover energy, regain brilliance and give the most next Friday against Lyon. This is what Mister Sarri is thinking of. Speaking after the match against Cagliari, he said: “We are not worried about today's game, we come off a Scudetto victory a few days ago. It was an atypical evening, for many reasons. Now it's important to recover for the game on Friday.
“The mentality and the dribbling level is satisfactory: what has to be raised is the pace of passing and the speed of the ball, but it is also true that to do this, you need greater athletic brilliance.”
He then touched on the frontline: "Ronaldo’s strength is that he is not identifiable in terms of movements, he is instinctive, and it’s often the case that the other attacker must adapt to him. His presence today? Yesterday, we talked to him and he was very motivated, he wanted to play.”
