Juventus coach Sarri again insists Rabiot has big role to play

Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri has again moved to publicly assure Adrien Rabiot of the midfielder's place in his plans.

Since his Bosman arrival from PSG this summer, Rabiot has battled for a regular run under Sarri.

But after victory over Udinese, the Juve coach insisted: "He's been improving for two games. It makes me feel like he needs playing time right now.

"He struggled in the first-half against Leverkusen before being better in the second. Currently, he needs minutes. He is clearly improving.

"Today, he has sacrificed a lot even in the defensive phases. I think he can do even better."
