Juventus, De Ligt: “I chose the Bianconeri only for Sarri”
Matthijs De Ligt, former Juventus defender, is back to talk to Espn of his experience in Turin, considered by the Dutch as not entirely positive. He talked about his first coach, Maurizio Sarri, praising him for his game. Here are the words of the former Ajax:
On the choice, for Maurizio Sarri:
“I chose to go to Juve with the idea of playing more offensive football because the manager was Sarri: he has a great reputation for what he did with Napoli and Chelsea and I thought I had a style more similar to Ajax. Unfortunately, after a year he left ”.
On his position on the pitch:
“I think I feel better on the center-right, I feel more comfortable. At the beginning at Juve it was difficult to play on the left, then in the middle of the season Bonucci and I reversed. We were a good couple, we won the Scudetto. In the 2nd and 3rd years, I went back to playing often on the left. It’s not that I didn’t want to play it, mind you, but I knew I was safer playing right. However, it was important for my development ”.
The differences with Ajax:
“At Ajax I pressed very hard, I took risks. At Juve it was different. I played more backwards, a different way of defending. The pace in Italy in general is slower, so you can stay behind. And given how much Juve has won in Italy, I think it’s the right way “.
