Sarri and Juventus tweak recipe

Maurizio Sarri seemed to fit Juventus like Parmesan on seafood pasta, but Giancarlo Rinaldi can imagine them changing each other for better - or worse.

It’s hard to avoid a wince when someone asks for Parmesan on their pasta with a seafood sauce. And many of us felt it was a similar faux pas when Juventus appointed Maurizio Sarri in the summer.

Spinazzola extends with Roma

Roma released a statement confirming Leonardo Spinazzola has already extended his contract to June 2024.

The full-back had only arrived from Juventus over the summer with a deal running to June 2023.

However, he has convinced the Giallorossi so much that they already got him to sign a new and improved deal.

The 26-year-old made the move from Juve for €29.5m as part of an exchange with Luca Pellegrini going to Turin.

Spinazzola has played in six games this season between Serie A and the Europa League, scoring one goal.

The Juventus goalkeeper spoke to La Gazzetta dello Sport magazine Sportweek about the figures he looks up to, including swimming champion Federica Pellegrini.
