Sassuolo coach Di Francesco pleased with goalscorer Zaza against Juventus

Sassuolo coach Eusebio Di Francesco was pleased with Simone Zaza in their 1-1 draw against Juventus.

Zaza's opener for Sassuolo was cancelled by Paul Pogba.

"He had a great performance before going to the Italy camp, then used up a lot of emotional and physical energy. I had hoped to build on that enthusiasm, but instead the pressure weighed on him.

"Simone was relaxed tonight and it showed. I do want him to avoid things like the yellow card and always having his hands raised to complain to the referee, as that's an irritating attitude. He needs to stop doing that if he wants to step up to a top club."
