Maurizio Sarri has had a meeting with superstar Cristiano Ronaldo following his appointment as Juventus head coach.
Sarri flew out to the south of France with Juventus chief Fabio Paratici, according to Goal.
Ronaldo scored 28 goals in all competitions during his debut campaign in Turin but Sarri is confident he can illicit even greater goalscoring exploits from the veteran forward. "I’ve trained great players over the years, but with Ronaldo I move on to the next level, a player who is at the top of the world," Sarri said on Thursday. This is a lad with every record in world football and I’d like to help him set another, knowing I contributed to it.
"I trained a player with the all-time Serie A record for goals in a single season. I’d like to make that two. It’d be an enormous satisfaction."
