Juventus manager, Maurizio Sarri has revealed that his wife still thinks he is the “same d***head as before”.
The Old Lady are “winter champions” in Serie A – leading at the halfway stage of the season in Italy.
But this achievement clearly isn't enough to impress Sarri’s wife.
When quizzed about the title of “winter champions” after the match, the former Chelsea boss was mischievous about it.
The 61-year-old said: “Winter Champions? My wife tells me that I am the same d***head as before.
“I was twice winter champion with Napoli without ever winning the Scudetto.
“I came to the conclusion, not to listen to the statistics.”
Napoli under Sarri had fought a hotly-contested title battle in the 2017-18 season with Juventus when Massimiliano Allegri was in charge.
At the halfway stage, Napoli were “winter champions” with a remarkable 48 points from their first 19 games.
But Sarri’s Napoli side couldn't quite sustain this form, and ended up failing to win the title; Sarri then moved to Chelsea.
And now, by the special grace of having a Ronaldo, Sarri is looking to win his first-ever major league title in management.
