Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri spoke to gathered reporters in a press conference today ahead of the Bianconeri’s league clash against Inter tomorrow in this season’s first Derby d’Italia.
“This isn’t a game that will decide the title, there are many games to play. I remember when we were ahead with Napoli and I answered to journalists that Juventus would win, they laughed but then it was really like that. There’s still a long way to go. Are Juventus the favourites? I don’t think we can say that in a single game. We will play against a strong, healthy team. I don’t think we can talk about a favourite team in this game, playing an Inter-Juventus is an emotion to be experienced. I’m happy to go to the stadium to see a game that will be seen from all over the world, a great challenge with two great teams.”
He also discussed Inter coach Antonio Conte.
“He’s one of the most important coaches in the world at the moment and he’s proving it also at Inter. But I don’t think I’m playing against Conte, but an important challenge like Inter-Juventus. I don’t think Inter’s solidity depends only on the defenders, they’re a solid team because they defend all together. It won’t be easy.”
