De Ligt Lament Why He Join “Juventus Turin”

Formal Ajax Defender Matthijs de Ligt says manager Maurizio Sarri is one of the main purpose he joined Juventus Turin.

The 19-year-old centre-back had been linked with a number of Europe’s top clubs but completed a £67.5m move to the Italian champions on Thursday.

Ex Chelsea boss Sarri was unpopular with some supporters at Stamford Bridge and left the club earlier this summer after less than a year in charge.

“He was one of the reasons that I wanted to join here,” said De Ligt. “I spoke to Sarri on the phone before coming just to get to know each other.

“I’ve learned a lot of good things about him and I like his footballing philosophy and how he prepares his defence.”
