The first defeat of the season and the two points away from Inter in the standings do not take away the smile at Juve. So on Monday night, at the Officine Grandi Riparazioni in Turin, on the occasion of the Christmas dinner with 600 guests, it was still a party. The bianconeri, in fact, have lost their unbeaten record in Serie A and at the continental level after twenty matches but have already qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League with two rounds of advance and with the first place secured in the group.
This is how Andrea Agnelli invited the team to the stage, the girls of Juventus Women, managers and technical staff: applause for all but in particular for Maurizio Sarri, the one who collected the legacy of Massimiliano Allegri and who is called to continue the winning cycle. "This summer when we went out with Paratici and Nedved to try to understand what was to be Juve of the future, a person listened to us and believed – said the Juventus president -. And in the first press conference he recalled the ferocity and the will with which we wanted it. It is the same ferocity and will with which you, Maurizio, wanted Juve. You have taken on a tough and difficult challenge but together we know we can win ».
Sarri who naturally accepted the invitation: "It was clearly a difficult challenge to accept because coming to a company that has already won everything, that has a great history, and carving out an important page within this story is certainly difficult for anyone. We want to continue winning in Italy and we want to be competitive at all costs in Europe. This is what I feel people want from us. In Italy we feel it almost like an obligation; in Europe we do not feel it as an obligation but as a great challenge to make all the Juventus people happy. The challenge is underway, it is not easy, but I am happy to be here and to have accepted it ».
