Sarri: 'Juve couldn't be beautiful'

Maurizio Sarri maintains Juventus always planned to take the sting out of Torino before winning late on. “This was not a game where we could try to be beautiful.”

The Bianconeri were again far from convincing, but scraped a 1-0 win thanks to Matthijs de Ligt volleying in a Gonzalo Higuain knockdown on a corner.

It allowed Juve to stay top of the table, despite Inter beating Bologna 2-1 in stoppages earlier this evening.

“I am really happy, of course. It was a really important game, as Inter won also. We won 1-0 and it was my goal, so really special,” the defender told DAZN.

Sarri: 'Juve took it too easy'

Maurizio Sarri reassured fans after Gonzalo Higuain’s head injury, but felt Juventus “took it a bit easy” in the 1-1 draw with Lecce and assumed they’d win.

After the final whistle, Higuain felt dizzy and was stretchered off, as he played the last few minutes with a bandaged head after a collision with goalkeeper Gabriel.

'De Ligt will become world's best'

Leonardo Bonucci has urged critics to lay off Matthijs de Ligt and is adamant his Juventus teammate “will become the best defender in the world.”

De Ligt’s early performances for Juve have been scrutinised heavily, given his status as arguably the most promising centre-back in European football and his hefty price tag, but Bonucci has no doubts at all about the Dutchman.

“De Ligt’s fate is already decided,” the 31-year-old told Tuttosport.

De Ligt: Don't listen to criticism

Matthijs de Ligt says he is ignoring criticism of his performances for Juventus as “I think I played well” against Lokomotiv Moscow.

Sections of the Italian Press have not been impressed with De Ligt’s early displays for Juve, more so given his status as the most expensive defender in Italian football history.

“I think I played well: I was solid and stable, and I didn’t do much wrong,” the 20-year-old told De Telegraaf after the Bianconeri’s 2-1 win against Lokomotiv Moscow.

Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo has been included on the 30-man shortlist of candidates to win the 2019 Ballon d’Or.

Ronaldo received the 16th Ballon d’Or nomination of his career on Monday evening, which is a record for the award.

However, it was short-lived as Barcelona rival Lionel Messi drew level with the Portuguese once the second batch of candidates were announced.

The No 7 won the Scudetto at the age of 34 last season and ran out as Juve’s top scorer with 28 goals.

Referees chief Marcello Nicchi insists Matthijs de Ligt’s handball “was never a penalty” and urges fans to “stop coming to games” if they think otherwise.

De Ligt drew controversy during Juventus’ 2-1 win against Bologna on Saturday as his clear handball in the box went unpunished, but Nicchi made it clear both the referee and VAR had applied the rules correctly.
