Douglas Costa: 'Sarri always says...'

Douglas Costa reveals the thing about Juventus players that most frustrates Maurizio Sarri and he does it with the tactician’s colourful language.

The Brazilian was speaking to Ferrari F1 driver Charles Leclerc on an Instagram Live chat when he confessed a training ground scene that is evidently quite familiar in Turin.

“Sarri always says, come on guys, don’t just **** about when you’re pressing, why do you always do that? Don’t go willy-nilly.”

“Don’t **** about, don’t **** about!” repeated Douglas Costa, perhaps not entirely sure the phrase isn’t good for polite conversation.

Sarri is legendary for being a stickler in training about repeated movements and precise tactics, which is also what Gianfranco Zola said caused some Chelsea players to become “bored” with his sessions.
