Soccer: Juventus still in the driving seat, warns Sarri

MILAN (Reuters) - Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri was delighted with his team’s 1-0 win at Serie A leaders Juventus on Sunday but warned that the Turin side were still in the driving seat in the title race.

“At the moment, I’m having fun. We made our extraordinary fans happy,” said Sarri after his side snatched a 90th-minute win with Kalidou Koulibaly’s header.

But he was quick to remember that Juve remained one point clear with four matches to play.

“Juventus are still in front, so nothing has really changed and we should only be thinking about the next game,” he said.

“Of course, it’s very difficult and fantastic to win here, it gives us enormous satisfaction but we have to remain lucid.

“It was an excellent performance because, to come here and make Juventus play on the back foot... that’s difficult for any team to do.”
