On The Continent: Maurizio Sarri's transfer troubles, Lyon start strong, and Franck flies to Florence

James Horncastle’s back in one of our continental hot seats and he’s packed some Serie A chat in his hand luggage! We start by talking about Juventus, as Sarri begins his reign in Turin. With the transfer window closing soon, their squad still looks a bit bloated— James discusses how they might be able to offload some of their fringe players as Sarri looks to streamline the team. We also discuss Franck Ribéry’s lovely move to Fiorentina and how they might get on under new coach Vincenzo Montella.

We then head to France as Andy’s faves Lyon have got off to a great start (against admittedly poor opposition). Plus, there’s talk on Zinedine Zidane’s difficult task at the helm of Real Madrid and Thierry Henry sticking his cultured boot in.
