Patrice Evra Wary of Sassuolo Threat

Juventus star Patrice Evra says that he is keen on winning the Italian Serie A title this season.

The French international may have recently overcome the disappointment of being left out of the French squad for the World Cup 2018 qualifiers by focusing on his club career with Juventus. Evra has had an immensely successful career playing for the likes of Monaco, Manchester United, and now, Juventus. He has won league titles in plenty, but it seems that the veteran is not satisfied even now. After having been consistent title winners since the days of Antonio Conte, Juventus have been continuing their success under Massimiliano Allegri.

After having sealed a fifth consecutive title last season, the club are targeting more success this time around. It will be harder than ever as they have lost Paul Pogba in the centre of midfield. The French international has been a major reason towards the club’s recent successes. Juventus certainly do not have the invincibility that they enjoyed a couple of seasons ago; it is a fact demonstrated by the club’s loss against Inter Milan in the league. Ahead of the next match against Sassuolo, Evra claims that Juventus to be extremely aware of the opposition who managed to get a 1-0 win in this fixture last season.

Evra has also gone on to describeSassuolo’s manager Eusebio Di Francesco as tremendous.”They’re a dangerous side, coached by a tremendous manager. Even if we know that we’re facing a difficult opponent, we need to bring home all three points. We’re set on lifting a sixth Scudetto title. That’s our objective, but we need to take each game at a time. It’s not easy in Italy to go into games as favourites. Every opponent gives their absolute all, as, for them, beating Juventus is like winning a trophy,” said Evra.
