Maurizio Sarri: I want my players to show heart and character against Juventus


Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri wants his players to show heart and character when they take on Juventus on Saturday night.

In one of the most eagerly-awaited matches of the weekend, the Partenopei will be hoping to take all three points and pile more pressure on Juventus who have been struggling for form this month.

"I want my players to show heart and character tomorrow," Sarri told reporters.

"The Juventus game is always special, I know how the city is eagerly awaiting the game and believe me, so am I.

"All I want is to see the Napoli fans proud at the end of the game, regardless of the scoreline.

"It's still early days [to understand who cannot afford to lose]. Juventus won away at Manchester last week so it's premature to say that they are facing a crisis.

"We gained eight points in four games, in all competitions, which is pretty positive so I wouldn't say that Napoli or Juventus are facing a crisis."
