Former midfielder has said that ex- coach Maurizio Sarri’s philosophy was too different to what the club was used to but he did compliment his teams for being difficult opponents in Serie A.

The now-retired 34-year-old played under the current coach as well as when he was at La Vecchia Signora, and he spoke of the great rapport he had with both tacticians.

“[Sarri] was too different from the style, but what a team his were, they made us suffer,” Khedira told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I got along well with him, he was always honest, and if I was fit, he made me play.

“However, Allegri was the best man that I have known in football. I had a great feeling around him also when my Italian was a disaster. It was a question of instinct.”

In addition to the coaches, Khedira also spoke positively about as a club and his former teammates.

“Juve are a great club and is a great country,” he said.

“It was wonderful to work with Chiellini, Buffon, Dybala, and Mandzukic, great players and people. I was lucky.”
