On Sunday in a match against Sampdoria, Juventus secured 2-0 triumph and won the Italian championship for the ninth time in a row.
Maurizio Sarri, head coach of Juve conquered the Serie A title and he is overwhelmed to win it as an “old man”.
He said, “as a grown-up, I didn’t win it, yet as an old man I did.”
Former Chelsea and Napoli boss Sarri, named as an “extraordinary feat” for the ninth straight series of Juventus.
Goals from Cristiano Ronaldo who also missed a penalty and Federico Bernardeschi helped Juve clinch the league crown.
“Because of everything that has happened, it was one of the hardest [seasons],” the Juventus head coach told a news conference.
“If you think we started our pre-season on July 6th and we won the title on July 26th the year after, that’s pretty hard. Nobody can tell me that the 50, 60 days we weren’t active due to lockdown, reading about thousands of deaths, was a relaxing time.”
“It’s been an extremely difficult season, a tough one – there’s nothing in sports, football, a life that can be taken for granted, winning is always tough.”
“It’s extremely hard to win for two to three years. Winning for nine years is – I think – an extraordinary feat as some of those players have.”
As a result of Juve’s success, the 61-year-old became the oldest coach to win Serie A.
The Italian joked at winning the title at his age, saying: “I used to dream, like all kids, of winning the Scudetto.”
