Prediction Game Champ 2003 & 2005
- Jan 12, 2002
"Winning is beautiful, but winning again is exciting"; with these words Juventus coach Marcello Lippi opened an interview during the weekend. He continued: "It will be difficult to rob us, because we've every chance to have another big season."
Aim: Champions League or Serie A ?
"At the beginning we surely won't renounce anything. We're the last Italian team that won the Champions League (1996) and our hope is to be able to give this gift to Italian soccer once again".
"There actually isn't very much money to do major transfers, but am happy to see Tudor, Montero and Salas again, who only played on a few occasions last season due to injuries. These are the biggest affairs that will be done".
Alessandro Del Piero:
"I'll immediately sign to have Alex play at the same level he did during the last championship" Lippi said, also adding that he will soon be awarded with the Golden Ball.
Pessotto and Zambrotta injuries:
"I'm evaluating different tactics. At the end of the last championship you have to remember that I was playing with Trezeguet, Del Piero, Zalayeta and Nedved. Salas could be an alternative to Zalayeta. Obviously I want to underline that this is only one of the possibilities".
"AC Milan. but I also fear the possible Ronaldo-effect at Inter. I have the belief that the World Cup has been an aperitif for him".
