Juventus coach Sarri admits being fan of Sassuolo counterpart De Zerbi

Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri admits he's a fan of Sassuolo counterpart Roberto de Zerbi.

Juve meet Sassuolo on Wednesday night.

Sarri said, “Everyone plays the football they can based on the characteristics of the players available. Otherwise you become your own coach and not the team.

“He gives an impression to his teams, has ideas and tries to apply them. He seems like the most interesting of the young coaches.

“I don't know if he is like me. Coaches are the result of their experiences, so it's not that I think any of us are totally inspired by another coach.

“He may have taken something but 99 per cent of what he does, he has come up with and taken from his own experiences."
