At the end of the match, after the ceremony, there was room for a smile for Mister Sarri. However, he immediately put aside tonight’s outing against Roma, and savoured the joy of the award ceremony and the Cup handover. Now, it is time to think about the big appointment on Friday, with the return of the Champions League.
“The physical energy can be recovered quickly, the mental and nervous ones must be reassured immediately, in order to give everything on Friday against Lyon,” he explains. “It can be good for us to have a little fear: we had an unconscious, inevitable drop after the victory against Lazio. We must, therefore, hold the opponent in high regard; also, starting from 0-1, at a time like this, is very difficult.
“I am convinced that the game on Friday will give us great stimuli, and that we will enter the field with a completely different attitude: we will have to be good these days to monitor who can give us more reliability. Dybala? He's doing pretty well, he'll start moving on the pitch tomorrow.
“The usual question remains: is it better to arrive after spending a lot of energy in a short time, like us, or fresh but no longer used to having played a real game? It's all unpublished and we will only have the answer on Friday.
He then finished off with: “At Juve, there are conditions for doing well; we must be very happy with what we have done this year, which has been totally atypical. It was a season in which the strongest could lose.”
