Ex-Juventus coach Lippi: Sarri needs time

Former Juventus boss Marcello Lippi has scoffed at claims of Maurizio Sarri's team being in crisis.

Juve are trailing Serie A leaders Inter Milan and were beaten by Lazio on Saturday.

But Lippi told TMW: “They have only lost one game, on Saturday.

“Before that they had never lost. Maurizio Sarri needs time. He doesn't have a magic wand."

He added: “It is too soon. We need to wait until May. Conte is doing a great job but I didn't think there would be any doubts. And I don't think they are the only team to play for the Scudetto.

“I believe Lazio can put themselves in the title equation. They are a team who play great football and are a modern side with good players, especially in midfield. I like them a lot."
