Juventus assistant coach Giovanni Martusciello said that head coach Maurizio Sarri, who is recovering from pneumonia, was very happy after club's 1-0 victory over Parma on Saturday.
As Sarri is recovering from pneumonia, he was not in the dugout. However, Martusciello said that they spoke to Sarri before, during and after the Serie A opening game.
"We spoke to Sarri many times in the morning. Clearly for him it's quite difficult to stay away from the team and therefore he wanted to know whatever was happening, the conditions of the lads, how they were living the beginning of the league," Goal.com quoted Martusciello as saying.
"And we also spoke to him before the game, during the break and at the end of the game. He was very happy for the result, but a bit angry as well because he is a perfectionist," he added.
Martusciello stated that Sarri gets a bit angry when something doesn't go in the direction he wants.
"When something doesn't go in the direction he wants, clearly he gets a bit angry. He was happy of what the lads did in the first half and above all he was super happy of how the team dealt with the moment of suffering in the game," Martusciello said.
Juventus will now face Napoli on September 1.
