Bonucci: Not been good enough

Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci admits he was not good enough last season and ‘wants to get back to what I was like two years ago.’

Bonucci returned to Juve from Milan last summer and helped them to another Scudetto, but some of his performances came in for criticism as the Old Lady failed in the Champions League and Coppa Italia.

The pressure is now on the 32-year-old to deliver following the €85.5m arrival of fellow centre-back Matthijs de Ligt.

Tactical Analysis: Sarri's Juventus

Maurizio Sarri wasn’t always a 4-3-3 tactician, as Elio Salerno goes into a deep dive on what form his new-look Juventus will take.

Now that the speculation is finally over, we can begin considering what Maurizio Sarri’s Juventus will actually look like.

However, stubborn Sarri has not always been married to that ideology.
