Locatelli: ‘Juventus incomparable’

Sassuolo midfielder Manuel Locatelli praised Juventus after their 3-0 win, insisting that “technically, there is no comparison with the others”.

The Bianconeri’s win ensured that they stretched their lead at the top of the Serie A table to 11 points.

Locatelli paid tribute to Massimiliano Allegri’s side, conceding that they’re a level above their rivals.

“We started off very well but dropped off after their goal,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“It was a good test for us but it’s a heavy defeat.

“Juventus are definitely better than the others in Italy. Technically, there is no comparison with the others. Congratulations to them.”

Meanwhile, the 21-year-old also spoke of his appreciation for Sassuolo and Coach Roberto De Zerbi for giving him the chance to develop and improve.

“They tried hard to sign me and made me feel important, I’m happy to be here,” he added.

“De Zerbi wanted me. He has also left me on the bench too but I’m repaying his confidence.”
