Juventus coach Sarri: Extraordinay weapon Douglas Costa inspired Lecce win

Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri heaped praise on Douglas Costa after victory over Lecce.

The midfielder's introduction sparked an avalanche of goals as Juve hit four after the break.

Sarri said, “He's an extraordinary weapon for this time of the season, when teams are most at risk of dropping off in the second half.

“He can change a game with his introduction. Let's not tell him that...

“He understands, but we have to keep him motivated and start him every now and then."
