The day after the stop against Lazio, Marcello Lippi analyze the situation of the team: “In this period we had some highs and lows. One of the bad match was surely yesterday’s one, played against an excellent opponent. But we don’t have to exaggerate, we’re still playing in all the competitions thanks to the good work done till now by the guys in these months, where the group was without many important player.”
“The last thing I’m worried about now is the distance from the top of the league, because the Serie A is long and we have time to recover. It’s not true we’re thinking more about Champions League than about Serie A: it may happen that after a match played on a Wednesday, like we did against Basel, we can not to be at the best. It could have happened the same also if the two competitions were inverted. There’s no reason to worry about this situation: after the Christmas holidays we’ll have the chance to recover. Who is thinking that Juventus is out of the fight for the Scudetto is wrong.”
Someone asked if there were any problem with the forwards, and Lippi answered this way: “There was a light general decrease. About our forwards I can say that Del Piero started in an incredible way and now he’s had a little low. Trezeguet was out for a long time and now he can’t be used in all the matches straight away. Di Vaio started well, then he had an injury ad he suffered for that, having also some psycological problems because, like in Brescia, he didn’t succeed in doing some things. Salas wants to play but he was out for a long time and he needs more time to get back at the top of his form. Zalayeta had some good moments and some less performing ones. Actually we couldn’t use the richness of our group because of the many injuries.”
On Wednesday’s match against Reggina (Coppa Italia), Lippi explained this: “The important will is to get through also this round to keep on playing also in this competition. I’ll go nearly for the same team which played the away match”.
Just Hear this :
Di Vaio is Suffuring psycological problems :LOL::LOL:
