We’re growing, says Diego

Posted on 01/02/2010


Juventus midfielder Diego has once again tried to look on the bright side after his side’s disappointing 1-1 draw with Lazio last night.

The Bianconeri struggled going forward, but took the lead from the spot on 75 minutes before Stefano Mauri equalised soon afterwards.

A lot was expected of Juventus after the board appointed Alberto Zaccheroni as Ciro Ferrara’s replacement on Friday.

Speaking after the game, Diego said: “We played better than our opponents, but this is football. Lazio equalised, despite, in my opinion, having just two or three chances in the entire game.

“For our part, we did everything possible to succeed, but evidently we still have to improve. On the one hand it’s positive to have created so many chances, but it is also necessary to score.

“We have to continue to train. Now, we have an entire week to do it. Then we’ll think about the next game.”

Reacting to Zaccheroni’s appointment, Diego said: “All the team has behaved better with respect to the past, but this is not enough to win, nor is playing well as we have done in this game.

“Zaccheroni asked me to play a lot, looking to free myself and to always have the ball at my feet. That’s what I tried to do in this game,” he concluded.
