Juventus coach Sarri: I get annoyed when it's claimed I've not won anything

Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri is eager to end his Italian title drought tonight.

Having led Chelsea to victory in the Europa League last season, Sarri will now lead Juve against Napoli in the Coppa Italia final.

He said, “I get a bit annoyed when I hear that I didn't win anything in Italy because I won eight promotions.

“That's perhaps a small thing compared to the Champions League and the Scudetto, but it's not easy.

“It's always an important incentive to win important trophies and there's a desire to lift the cup. I focus on us; I'm not interested in Napoli. I'm happy that we are in the Final."

Sarri added: “I will tell them that we played seven months and then were three months in lockdown before getting to play these games.

“Now, we have to bring out that little extra to take home as many trophies as possible."
