Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri, who works with some high-profile stars in the form of Paulo Dybala and Cristiano Ronaldo, has revealed which player he always has big disagreements with, claiming that this star sometimes needs a "beating against a wall".
The former Napoli boss is not someone to mince his words, which has resulted in the Italian tactician having a number of arguments with players over the years.
Speaking ahead of Juve's away clash at AC Milan on Tuesday night, Sarri claimed that the only player he fights with regularly is striker Gonzalo Higuain, even though he is not entirely sure why they always seem to clash.
"I always read that I fight with everyone, when actually the only person I fight with is Higuain," he said, according to Goal.
"I don't know why that is, but it's always been the case. Maybe it's because he needs a rather aggressive counterpoint to bring out the best in him.
"Mentally he's fine, but physically I don't know how much he can take because he's been on and off lately.
"He needs pampering one day and beating against a wall the next! When he's feeling down, he needs caring for.
"When he's on a high, he must be brought down a peg, because he can get too carried away."

Higuain has worked under Sarri at three different clubs – Napoli, Chelsea and now Juve – and has scored 52 goals in 97 matches under the tactician.
