And after putting them through fitness tests, 59-year-old Sarri insisted he wanted to ensure his stars were mentally equipped to compete for honours.

He revealed: "I went player by player. I had a meeting of ten minutes individual meetings.

"We lost the match after three months and a half, we have to understand why and from the mental approach.

"If you don’t have the determination then maybe you don’t have the character in the mind, I wanted to understand this.

"The target in my mind is very clear, it is to win something and in the long run to become the best team in Europe."
