Juventus coach Sarri on beating Lecce: We kept plugging away

Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri was relieved with their 4-0 rout of Lecce on Friday.

Paulo Dybala, Cristiano Ronaldo, Gonzalo Higuain and Matthijs de Ligt all struck after halftime.

“I saw a game that was most painful in a physical sense," Sarri said after the game.

“We struggled for fuel, even if we kept plugging away. Playing every three days, it can happen that we're unable to get going right away in the best possible way.

“The important thing is to focus on ourselves with the mentality we showed tonight. We're only thinking about ourselves."
