TURIN – A few hours after the Champions League game between his Juventus and Lyon, Maurizio Sarri took the time to protest the decision to have only the games of the teams of the regions affected by the Coronavirus play behind closed doors. His statements are reported by the Corriere dello Sport.
Coronavirus, Sarri: “Juve-Inter behind closed doors? Then also all the other matches. "
“Juve-Inter behind closed doors? Then also all the other matches. It should apply to everyone. Surely the fans will go away. The virus is a European problem, not an Italian one. In Italy we did 2500 swab tests, in France you did 300 and you have a lot of positives less. Our fans have every right to be here.
Pressure? In Italy we feel the obligation to hit all the targets, in Europe there are teams with higher power than ours. We are among the 10-12 teams that have this dream goal. The Champions League is a dream.
I feel more responsibility in the league, in Serie A we have an obligation to win. The Champions League is very difficult for the Italians. Twenty years ago we were leaders, but in twenty years we were overtaken by several football groups.
We were lucky to be able to pursue this dream, there is nothing more beautiful in life. If you reach it it is an ecstasy, otherwise it is a journey. I feel the weight more in Italy "(source Il Corriere dello Sport).
