Pjanic is enjoying Sarriball, urges teammates to be more clinical


Juventus is at the top of Serie A after 10 matchdays, but the side has been far from impressive. Apart from recording two major wins against biggest rivals Napoli and Inter, the team has been underwhelming. Especially after the successful transfer windows they had. But team's playmaker Miralem Pjanic is satisfied with the new coach Mauricio Sarri and what he brings to the table.

The former Roma player explained what he enjoys the most about the style of play Sarri brought to Turin.

"What I like about Sarri's vision is the one, two-touch game, making the ball move more than us, because the ball always travels faster. Although, recently we've been seeing out matches with few goals compared to what we're creating, and this puts us in a bit of danger and doesn't give us all the satisfaction we could have for how we play," said Pjanic. 

But the Bosnian international is certain that there are areas his team needs to improve in.

"We have to be more clinical and take more chances. This will also make opponents have more respect and fear than us. Calm and clarity will come once we start to score more, and we'll then keep doing so because this team has so much quality that we'll be able to score goals from every angle. But we have to be more clinical."

Cristiano Ronaldo was guilty of missing chances against Genoa but Pjanic was mostly relieved they got the win in the end, with a CR7 penalty, as Inter remain just a point behind Juve.

"It happens to everyone, but luckily we won in the end and they're three important points, given the results: Inter had won, Napoli lost points. It was important to keep up and move forward and to do so until March, which will be the most important month, and maybe see if we can go ahead a little," said the 29-year-old midfielder.
