Ancelotti: 'Sarri deserves Juve'

Carlo Ancelotti has claimed Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri did an ‘excellent job’ in leading Juventus to their ninth consecutive title. ‘He deserves to be at a big club’.

The former Napoli coach joined Everton in December, as the Partenopei struggled to keep up with the Scudetto battle in Serie A.

Juventus eventually picked up their ninth straight trophy on Sunday and Ancelotti claims Sarri has proven the critics wrong.

A Scudetto without splendour

Juventus finally won their ninth successive Scudetto on Sunday night but, as Livio Caferoglu explains, there wasn’t much cause for celebration.

Juventus should be on cloud nine after clinching their ninth consecutive Serie A crown. Their fans won’t be present to join in on the title celebrations but, even with them there, this won’t have felt like a Scudetto worth cheering about. That’s not to say the Bianconeri don’t deserve credit for making more history, exposing the laughable lack of competition, but that is precisely what allowed them to get away with doing the bare minimum. For a club that prides itself on setting the bar high, its standards seem to be dropping.

Sarri: 'If Juve won with me, they must be good!'

Maurizio Sarri explains the feeling of winning his first league title, why he took some time to ‘tweak’ Juventus and what he told the players. ‘If you won with me, you must be really good!’

This was his first major title after the Europa League with Chelsea, and he became the oldest coach ever to win the Scudetto, aged 61 years and six months.

He ran off to the dressing room straight after the final whistle, as he seemingly wanted to smoke a cigarette and avoid getting foamed by his players, but appeared to achieve neither of those aims.

Juve worst defence to win title in 60 years

It’s a tradition that the best defence wins the title in Italy, but Juventus become the first side since 1960-61 to take the Scudetto when conceding 38 goals.

There are still two rounds to go, so their tally could get even worse.

Juve let in 38 goals in 36 rounds, more than any other Scudetto-winner since 1960-61.

That too was Juventus, under coach Carlo Parola.

Since the nine-title running streak began in 2011-12, the most they conceded was 30 in 2018-19, letting in 20 in 2011-12 and 2015-16.

Bonucci: 'Struggled to understand Sarri'

Leonardo Bonucci admits this was ‘the most difficult’ title of the nine-season Juventus run. ‘We struggled to interpret’ Maurizio Sarri’s philosophy.

The Bianconeri achieved history with this evening’s 2-0 victory over Sampdoria, ensuring they have won the Scudetto under Antonio Conte, Max Allegri and Maurizio Sarri.

“It was the most beautiful title, because it was the most difficult,” Bonucci told Sky Sport Italia.

Sarri the oldest Scudetto winner

Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri made history as the oldest coach to win a Serie A title, aged 61 years and six months.

There were many records to be broken when the Bianconeri beat Sampdoria 2-0 this evening to clinch their ninth successive league trophy.

Sarri’s entire career so far has resulted in one major trophy, the Europa League with Chelsea last season.

Now at the age of 61 years and six months, he becomes the oldest coach ever to win the Serie A title.

Italian coaches dominate for a decade

For the first time in Serie A history, the Scudetto has been won by an Italian coach for 10 consecutive seasons.

The last foreign coach to lift the trophy in the Peninsula was Jose Mourinho during the Treble campaign of 2009-10.

He was followed by Max Allegri at Milan in 2010-11, then the Juventus streak took hold from 2011-12.

Antonio Conte was at the helm for Scudetto celebrations in 2012, 2013 and 2014.

Allegri then picked up where he left off, becoming the first coach to win five consecutive Serie A titles from 2015 to 2019.

Sarri: 'Prefer to lose when trying to win'

It kicks off on Sunday at 20.45 UK time (19.45 GMT), click here for a match preview.

The Bianconeri could’ve already been Champions of Italy midweek, but they fumbled yet another lead and lost 2-1 away to Udinese.

Sarri: 'Juventus lost organisation'

Maurizio Sarri admits Juventus tend to ‘lose our organisation and shape’ after a 2-1 defeat to Udinese. ‘Games are strange after the lockdown.’

The Bianconeri fumbled 18 points from leading situations in Serie A this season and had gone in front at the Dacia Arena with a Matthijs de Ligt strike, but Ilija Nestorovski’s diving header and a Seko Fofana counter-attack in stoppages turned it all around.

Sarri: 'Almost winning is meaningless'

Maurizio Sarri reiterates that ‘almost’ securing the ninth consecutive Serie A title for Juventus is ‘meaningless’ and tries to focus on the trip to Udinese.

It kicks off on Thursday at 18.30 UK time (17.30 GMT), click here for a match preview.

The Bianconeri are almost there for the Scudetto, as if Inter don’t beat Fiorentina tonight, they can mathematically clinch the title with a win in Udine.
