Maurizio Sarri accuses Juventus players of not using their brains in Sassuolo draw

Maurizio Sarri was left incensed after Juventus' 2-2 draw against Sassuolo as he accused his players of lacking 'brain and soul' and making 'daft errors'.

The draw means that Juventus have surrendered top spot to Inter Milan who beat Spal 2-1 and are now a point behind their Milan rivals.

Leonardo Bonucci opened the scoring for Juventus but it was canceled out by Jeremie Boga with Sassuolo going ahead through Francesco Caputo but Cristiano Ronaldo's 68th-minute penalty handed Juventus a point.

In an interview with DAZN, Sarri accused his players of not using their brains, "I spoke to the team for 30 seconds after the game.

"It wasn’t a negative performance, but we opened up far too many spaces, lost the ball cheaply and didn’t use our brains. It went better in the second half, but in the first we got the feeling there wasn’t enough focus.

"We made some really daft errors, conceding a goal because we were too sluggish tracking back. The build-up play was slow too, the midfield movements were off.

"I think it was because we were coming off two very stressful games and it wasn’t easy to recharge the batteries. The team lacked a bit of brain and soul. The reaction came at the end and we could even have won it."
