De Canio sees no Juve crisis

Posted on 17/10/2010


Juventus might not be firing on all cylinders, but Lecce boss Luigi De Canio is not fooled. “A few hiccups does not mean they’re in crisis.”

The Bianconeri have only won once on home turf this season, a 4-2 victory against Cagliari.

“Juve are still Juve and we know that we’re facing a squad of champions who’ll see us as an opportunity to climb up the standings,” warned De Canio.

“It is ridiculous to say that Juventus are struggling, as a few hiccups does not mean they’re in crisis.

“It’s true they have conceded a lot of goals, but it’s too early into the season to read anything into those statistics.

“Gigi Del Neri’s teams have always stood out for their defensive organisation. I watched Inter-Juventus and saw a side that defended very well and pushed forward equally impressively.

“We will oppose Juventus with everything we have.”
