Zac: ‘Juve deserved bigger lead’

Posted on 12/03/2010


Alberto Zaccheroni knew Juventus had to build a nest-egg against Fulham and was “disappointed the result wasn’t bigger.”

The Bianconeri won 3-1 in Turin for the first leg of their Europa League clash in a bid for the quarter-finals.

“We had to put a great deal of effort into this match with an eye to the second leg at Craven Cottage,” said the Coach.

“Fulham have built their success on home turf this season, so we knew it was important to get a good lead.”

Nicola Legrottaglie and Jonathan Zebina gave Juve an early lead, then David Trezeguet struck after Dickson Etuhu’s lucky ricochet.

“Considering the way my team played, I was disappointed the result wasn’t bigger. We will go to London next week to face an unpredictable side.”

Juventus seem to have rediscovered their form after a few hiccups, notching up back-to-back wins over Fiorentina and Fulham.

“The most important thing for me is to see the unity of the team, so that they attack and defend all together. I can see that now.

“There is time to go through the details, but the players are working hard and we’re on the right track.”
