Juve brushed aside Fiorentina in their last match, and Juric believes that now they are becoming more of team in Sarri’s image.
“I believe that Juve are now like the way Sarri wants them to be, the lines have got closer,” said Juric in his press conference.
“Their level of play has progressed.”
Verona held Lazio to a 0-0 draw during the week, and Juric wishes he had more time with his side to prepare for the Old Lady.
“There was a significant amount of energy used the other day, now we will see what can be done. This kind of game prepares itself in a way.
“I would’ve liked more time, but I’ve accepted it and I don’t think of anything else.”
Verona have confounded the critics this season, and Juric puts it down to his staff.
“We have created a good working enviorinment, all the staff are working well, but also the medical and backroom staff.
“I told the boys that if they reach the objective by the last day of the season ill bring them all out for food.”
Amir Rrahmani was impressive in the 0-0 draw against Lazio on Wednesday, and Juric says he’s a player that always gives the maximum, despite signing for Napoli for next season.
“My feeling is that those who have signed for other teams and play poorly is down to other reasons.
“I’m pretty calm from this point of view.”
