Sarri set to deploy Cristiano Ronaldo as a ‘false 9’ at Juventus

The Serie A champions unveiled Sarri has the new Juventus coach after Massimiliano Allegri lost his job due to quater-finals defeat against Ajax.

Sarri led Chelsea to a Europa League title last season which was his first major trophy.

And now he has signed for Juve who expect him to be the man to lead them to Champions League glory.

Juventus will most certainly be a formidable side next season as they have already signed Aaron Ramsey on a free transfer.

Adrien Rabiot is also expected to sign for them without a transfer fee and they are also being linked with Matthijs de Ligt for a deal close to £60 million.

Cristiano Ronaldo

But if the Old Lady wants to win the Champions League next season one man will most certainly play a crucial role, Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese superstar ended the season with 28 goals last season, his worst return in almost 10 years.

He will be ready to improve his record next season, and now there are numerous reports suggesting that Sarri will use Ronaldo as a ‘False 9’.

It will be very interesting to see how Ronaldo adapts to his new role.

Sarri recently said on his unveiling that he is excited to have the opportunity to manage Ronaldo and believes he could help CR7 break some new records next season.

“At Chelsea I coached some very strong players, but training Cristiano Ronaldo will be yet another step forward. I’d like to help him break some new records,”

“When you have a player with the qualities of Paulo Dybala or Cristiano they can play in any role. What can change is only the interpretation of the role.”

“You have to have clear ideas on two or three players who can make a real difference for the team and then give them an environment to truly express themselves. If a team enjoys itself on the pitch then the spectators enjoy themselves and this is fuel to win.”

Sarri said.
