After record equalling loss, Juventus fans single out one player for criticism
Juve suffer another loss
Juventus suffered the third loss of their Serie A campaign, just 10 games in, courtesy of a last-minute winner for Sassuolo.
Falling behind on the stroke of half-time, Weston McKennie had drawn Max Allegri’s side level, but it proved to be in vain, as they overcommitted searching for a winner, and were punished as a result.
Sassuolo snatch three points at the death in Turin! 😳
Juventus commit too many players forward when hunting for a winner and it costs them dearly! 😬 pic.twitter.com/A5kG3CZVT1

Not content with the last minute winner, Maxi Lopez rubbed salt into the freshly gaping Juve wound by pulling off Cristiano Ronaldo’s Siu celebration in front of the Turin faithful. A stark reminder that they need to start finding ways to play without last seasons Serie A top goalscorer.
Locatelli singled out for criticism
After the game, it was one man that Juve fans singled out for criticism, in the form of former Sassuolo midfielder Manuel Locatelli. The Italian joined the Old Lady from Sassuolo in the summer, but was poor in his first game against his former side, and was substituted in the second half. Safe to say, Juve fans were not impressed.
I genuinely wonder where all the hype for locatelli has been this last how many games 5 6 7 where has he gone genuinely wondering what happened to him ????? I swear I was hearing he was pirlo the first 4games of seria a 😭😭

Locatelli is a good player but he’s overrated, he’s not the game changing midfielder Juve and Italy fans think he is. We have 3 much, much better midfielders https://t.co/hsp3B7ox8c

Locatelli struggled vs his former team. He will come back strong.
