Albanian PM Rama a Juventus fan: But don't ask me about Sarri!

Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama admits he's a huge Juventus fan.

Speaking with Gazzetta dello Sport, Rama was reluctant to judge coach Maurizio Sarri's methods.

Rama said, “Ah, I'm not saying anything because in Italy there are enough people who know everything without ever having touched a ball! In football, I watch fragments of life, I learn different ways to win. For me, great coaches are masters of leadership, like Mourinho."

“The Juventus players have agreed to cut their salaries? It is the strength of that spirit of which I said before and which makes Juventus a religion, not simply a great football team.

“My favourite Juve player has been, and will always be Dino Zoff. In my Government, I would like Giorgio Chiellini the Interior Minister and Leonardo Bonucci as the Defence Minister."
