Danilo: Sarri 'very similar' to Pep

Danilo says Maurizio Sarri is “very similar” to Pep Guardiola in how he works, even if the Juventus boss “gives more freedom to individual initiative.”

Danilo traded Manchester City for Juve over the summer, as part of the deal that took Joao Cancelo to the English champions, and the right-back is enjoying life in Turin. 

“Turin is very different to Manchester,” the 28-year-old told Globo Esporte.

Guardiola: 'Wonderful result with Atalanta'

Pep Guardiola admits “the fear set in” after Claudio Bravo’s red card and “four points from two games against Atalanta is a wonderful result” for Manchester City.

Raheem Sterling scored early on at San Siro and Gabriel Jesus missed a penalty, but the hosts dominated the second half with a Mario Pasalic header and were unable to make the most of Bravo’s dismissal.

As Ederson went off injured, it meant there were no other goalkeepers available, so Kyle Walker had to take the gloves.

Pep: 'Don't know about Italy'

Pep Guardiola admits he “doesn’t know” whether he would like to coach in Italy as Manchester City prepare to face Atalanta at San Siro tomorrow.

Guardiola was heavily backed to replace Max Allegri at Juventus over the summer, with one report even claiming he had agreed a deal to take over.

Instead, the 48-year-old is busy masterminding another win for the English giants, which would book their place in the Champions League last 16.

Balotelli opens Brescia era

After 1,228 days, Mario Balotelli will play in Serie A again tonight when Brescia host Juventus, so Emmet Gates wonders what version of the striker we’ll see.

Mario Balotelli is back, again. Three years after his last spell in Serie A with Milan that ended in a solitary goal from 20 games, Italy’s prodigal son has returned. This homecoming is a little different, as he’s returned to where the Balotelli story began, to Brescia.
