Danilo: 'Juve want to crush rivals'

Danilo has warned Juventus want to “crush” their rivals under Maurizio Sarri but that “it takes time”.

Juve remain unbeaten under Sarri, winning 13 of their 16 games so far this season, but the former Chelsea and Napoli boss is also aiming to implement more of a passing-pressing style in Turin. 

“He wants to change Juventus, but it’s not simple and it takes time,” Danilo, who previously played for Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, told Sky Sport Italia.

“Sarri wants to propose a new system, whereby we crush our opponents. He reminds me of Guardiola.

“When he arrived at City, it took two years before the team understood their style of play.”

The right-back was also asked about Cristiano Ronaldo, who put an alleged knee injury behind him to star for Portugal during the international break.

“He’s incredible, he always manages to be 100 percent focused. When he’s with his national team, he only thinks about Portugal.

“Then he returns and is immediately ready for the next game.”
