[VIDEO] Maurizio Sarri: Juve ‘total blackout’ against AC Milan

Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri believes his team is in “total blackout” after a shocking 4-2 defeat to AC Milan.

The Old Lady have a comfortable two-goal lead in the first half through Adrien Rabiot and Cristiano Ronaldo.

But 2-0 scoreline was completely wiped out as Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a penalty in the 62nd minute, while Franck Kessie equalised four minutes later before Rafael Leao scored the third goal, with Ante Rebic scoring the fourth goal.

All Milan’s goals scored within 18 minutes.

“I think our first 60 minutes were world class. We were in total control and had this blackout,” Sarri told sports streaming service DAZN.

“There’s not even much use thinking too much about it, because we have another game in three days.

“It’s usually not even possible to find the reasons for these inexplicable blackouts.”

Sarri however, refused to overthink the defeat, as he is only thinking about the next game against Atalanta on Sunday.

“Sitting here trying to over-analyse it or put ourselves on trial could be counter-productive and make us lose all the good work we’ve done so far.

“It’s completely different to the defeats against Verona and Napoli, so we have to focus on the next match. This is a team that has excellent football in its capabilities and that is what we need to build on.”
