Juventus coach Sarri lifts lid on his superstitions

Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri has lifted the lid on his superstitions.

Sarri admits he went overboard at times.

“When I was coaching at Eccellenza level in Tuscany, I had this obsession with parking my car in the same spot every day," he told JTV.

“The players noticed this and every now and then would put their car in it first to annoy me. I remember one time I went into the dressing room and told the lad whose car was in my spot that he had three minutes to move it, or I would find a way to do it myself.

“He didn't go out to his vehicle, so I put my car behind his and pushed it out of the way. We won the game 2-0 that day, so he couldn't complain."
