Eusebio Di Francesco confessed Sassuolo weren’t at their best in the Trofeo TIM against Milan and Juventus.
The tournament was played at their Mapei Stadium in Reggio Emilia, but the hosts lost both mini-matches.
“We certainly weren’t sharp today, as we played two days ago in the Coppa Italia,” Coach Di Francesco told Sport Mediaset.
“You could see how determined Milan were and they really put their heart into this tournament to lift the trophy.
“I thought we did well against Juventus, while I expected a little more from the Milan game.”
“We do need to make a few adjustments to the squad, above all for a goalkeeper, but we’ll see by the end of the market what emerges.”
