Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri had tried to take a dig at Juventus and, while he praised the league leaders for their great form, the Juventus manager shot off a warning to his Serie A rival.
SSC Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri had earlier taken a dig at the Bianconerri, saying that they were still a ‘work in progress’, but manager Massimiliano Allegri gave him a few sharp words of advice when asked to comment on his rival’s words.
“It has to be said though that Napoli are doing extraordinary things.” Allegri said, according to fourfourtwo.com.
“There are now only two games to go before we play them but I still believe that it will be the last six games that will be crucial to deciding the Scudetto.
“I also heard about Sarri saying that we are still not a complete team but all I have to say is that he should be happy with what his own team are doing. You shouldn’t look at someone else’s affairs but I respect everyone’s views regardless.”
Juventus on fire in the Serie A
Juventus are riding a wave of 12 consecutive wins that have seen them make up for their disappointing start to the season and helped them climb up to the second position in the Serie A table, just two points adrift of leaders Napoli.
The race for the Scudetto is heating up with 22 games gone, and it looks like it could end up being a two horse affair between Napoli and Juventus. The Bianconerri have a chance to equal a club record if they manage to win against Genoa on Wednesday, and a little slip up by the Partenopei is all it could take for Juve to edge past them.
