Bentancur: 'We did what Sarri wanted'

Rodrigo Bentancur has claimed Juventus ‘still have to improve’ after the 3-1 win against Genoa, but feels he has ‘developed’ this season and was happy to see the team follow Maurizio Sarri’s tactics.

The midfielder impressed again when Juventus beat Genoa at the Marassi, as three stunning goals by Paulo Dybala, Cristiano Ronaldo and Douglas Costa helped the Bianconeri reclaim their four-point lead at the top.

Bentancur was again one of the protagonists in the middle of the park and the Uruguayan praised the team effort of the night.

“We played a great game. Let’s think about what we are doing,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “We are doing quite well, but we still have some things to improve.

“I’m very happy with the performance from the team.”

The 23-year-old has contributed seven assists in 22 League games this term and has shown coach Maurizio Sarri that he can count on him both defensively and in attack.

“Today we did what the coach asked of us. This year I have developed, every game I feel better. This is a team effort, not an individual one. I think we are doing things very well."
