Why are there no reactions from Juventus players after the defeat against Verona?

Understand Juventus in 10 points

I want to try to put together the problems that Juventus, as a team, is facing.

  1. It won the last 8 Serie A championships
  2. The Champions League is its black beast.
  3. It’s a team made up largely of champions
  4. Cristiano Ronaldo, the planetary star of football and bearer of formidable economic interests for Juventus SpA, plays it.
  5. It has always had coaches (like Trapattoni, Capello, Lippi, Conte and Allegri) with a concrete attitude, very assertive and aimed at winning starting from strong defenses, a midfield centered to play for the champion of turn (Sivori, Platini, Zidane, Pirlo and so on) until an attack that always lined up the strongest champions
  6. Juventus does not appear determined on the pitch, it does not play with the intensity that instead shows the team which wants to win
  7. Is this a difficulty due to a superficial approach by the players? Do they expect to win with little effort?
  8. Is the coach too focused on wanting to prove that his playing module is the “right” one? While he’s less concerned with how to change what’s happening on the pitch?
  9. The coach seems less determined in (public) communication than his predecessors at Juventus. Does he show this personal trait differently from others, or is this his weakness?
  10. How does he match the main problem that all coaches have: wanting to prove that he is right and at the same time wanting to win. In the first case, his method dominates, while in the second case on the top there is the adaptation to the Club philosophy the team culture and the players characteristics.

Sarri and Ancelotti stress management

Sarri problems in the management of  Ronaldo and those of Ancelotti with his team and his president highlight how it’s difficult in these moments to remain optimistic, satisfied and determined rather than pessimistic, dissatisfied and distressed. The question is: how to maintain this attitude during the evolution of the crisis situation.

This stress does not come so much from the results but refers to the stress of managing the players, from misunderstandings arising during the work and from having to negotiate with their players.

We know that what differentiates a coach who manages these experiences from another who, on the contrary, is chocked by them, it is in the way of dealing with situations perceived as stressful.

One question to answer is: “How can I show myself convinced that we will be able to get out of this crisis or that my choices are the right ones?” In football, if we don’t believe we have everything we need to be able to achieve our goals, it’s almost certain that we won’t achieve it. It’s like saying to our opponents: “Today we’ll give you some of our confidence to win, we’d rather remain insecure. So the lesson is as follows: accept the challenge and play with the confidence we can do it till the final whistle. Players are taught to chase even the balls that are impossible to catch, the same for the coach because we must never leave the idea that nothing is impossible.lite sarri ronaldo juventus milanRisultati immagini per Ancelotti insigne lite

Stress destroyed Napoli match

Napoli vs Manchester City match teaches us that the fear of the opponent can become numbing experience.

My question is: during the week, instead of spending so much time  just talking about game plan, it wouldn’t it be more useful to address the issue of crippling fear and strength? And, of course, establish and train the attitude to play these games.

Play schema are required but, if the players have not learned to use their mind constructively, they are only one way to find out how you should play. The penalty miss from Napoli is another example of what happens when the fear dominates the mind.
