Zac: ‘We’re not through yet’

Posted on 18/02/2010


Alberto Zaccheroni warns Juventus are not qualified for the Europa League next round yet, despite their win in Holland.

“I had expected us to struggle and told my players the same. Ajax may be missing something in terms of star names, but they play very well as a collective.

“We earned a result that does not qualify us yet, but it is very important for our chances.”

The Bianconeri had gone behind at the Amsterdam Arena, but a brace of Amauri headers turned it around for the 2-1 victory.

“I repeat what I said when he hadn’t scored for four months – you never play with 10 men if Amauri is in the side,” explained Zac.

“He knows how to play with his back to goal and even better when facing the net. We put him in a position to score and he did what he does best.”

The Brazilian had not netted since October 28 in all competition before netting in Sunday’s 3-2 win over Genoa.
