It’s time to get a little crazy, Juventus boss Carlo Ancelotti has said.
It was an incredible week for Juventus and they have done it all.
They won the Serie A title and are now set to make their first Champions League appearance in more than five years.
The Bianconeri are in their first season back in the competition and their new signings include a number of world-class talents, including Andrea Pirlo and Sergio Ramos, both of whom have helped the Bianconera to third place in the table.
They will also add another star to their squad, as Juve confirm the signing of Juventus’ current captain of the moment, Corte Diampolo, a left-back who is expected to join from Barcelona.
In a recent interview with Football Italias, the Italian boss admitted he was not a fan of the current squad’s attitude and his belief that his players could have been more clinical, tactically.
“I think the way we played the first couple of games was not good, because it’s not a good way to play football,” he said.
“I think we played better when we played like this.
We conceded too many goals, and that’s the problem. “
We had some good moments, but we didn’t finish.
We conceded too many goals, and that’s the problem.
I think you have to try to improve, and to find a way to win games.” And Ancelónso is keen to change things up, adding: “When you lose, the way you play the next game is important.
When you play a team like Juventus, who has a very good side, that’s a different thing.
It’s not the same as playing a team of 10,000 players, and not having to play against 10,001 players.
We have to be patient, and we have to play without fear.
A new face in the stands, and an Italian coach, will change things, and this is what I like.”
Juventus’ season will begin against Borussia Dortmund on Sunday, with the Biancocelesti set to have to wait until the end of the season to get back into the Champions League.
