Evra: Juventus Throwing Away Chance To Make History

share on:

Following the 1-0 loss to Sassuolo on Wednesday, Evra thinks Juventus are throwing away the chance to make history with a fifth consecutive scudetto.

The recent loss is Juventus fourth of 10 matches and has sent the current scudetto and coppa Italia holders to 12th.

And Evra has blamed the attitude that Juventus players seem to display, saying they’re losing the chance to make history.

“I’m angry. When you play for this team you must always believe you can win the title every year,” he told Sky Sport.

“This is clearly not the best time to talk about it, but when I wake up every morning, I tell myself I could be lucky enough to lift a fifth consecutive Scudetto.

“Instead, as it stands, we’re currently throwing away this chance to make history. A message to my team-mates? Let’s respect this shirt. We didn’t do that in the first half against Sassuolo.

“Perhaps it’s easier to speak about the game having not played in it, but as Gigi [Buffon] said, we didn’t see the true Juventus against Sassuolo.

“You can’t swing from the kind of display we produced against Atalanta to how we performed in the first half last night.”

Juve, now 11 points behind leaders Roma, will be looking to return to winning ways against local rivals Torino at the weekend, and Evra is determined to make amends for the loss in midweek.

“I know that it’s a derby game and that beating Juventus means as much as winning the league for Torino fans,” he said.

“This isn’t my philosophy. I want to win and all I can say is that our approach on Saturday will be spot on.”
