Ronaldo and Juventus Teammates Are Lacking Sharpness, Says Sarri

Juventus has not returned to their performance after the resumption of games. Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri, after losing to Napoli in the Coppa Italia final, said that Ronaldo and other Juventus players lack the sharpness.
In the final against Napoli, a goalless full-time game was directed to a penalty shootout. Napoli won the shootout for 4–2 and became the champions in Coppa Italia. Meanwhile, Juventus in the twomatches after the break of coronavirus has ended up goalless.

Sarri says that after three months of a long break from football Ronaldo like all the other attackers are lacking the fitness required for the game. Like Dybala and Douglas Costa, he is lacking the sharpness to do his game at the pitch. He was angry and disappointed by the team’s performance and has avoided the talk with them. He said that at times like this it is better to stay silent.

Dybala and Danilo were the ones who missed the penalties in the shootout. Sarri said that the previous games after the resumption of football in Italy have been bad and disappointing for the fans, the players and himself.
“We made different choices than usual, pressing less high to have a better grip at a distance and we played the game with good levels of application,” said Sarri.
Sarri said that currently, they are lacking the brilliance to play a dangerous game as in the past. The past few months without football has affected everyone. Without an exceptional game, it is most likely for them not to win the match. The players are usually good at finding solutions when a problem arises on the pitch. But after the resumption of the game, the team is lacking this brilliance.
Meanwhile, Napoli manager GennaroGattuso is glad about winning the final and said that Napoli's hard work has been recognised by the god of football. This was his first major trophy after he had become the manager of the Italian club. He is now looking forward to playing in Serie A where they are standing in the sixth position and is behind the fourth-placedAtlanta for nine behinds.
