Del Neri credits Aquilani

Posted on 17/10/2010


Gigi Del Neri feels Juventus are “improving in every area” after their 4-0 thrashing of Lecce, but above all thanks to Alberto Aquilani.

The result was a further boost after their draws with Manchester City and Inter.

“The team is improving in every area,” said the Coach. “Aquilani has pushed his way into this squad. He has technique, has matured and alongside him everyone is doing better.

“I thought Felipe Melo could give an important contribution this season and he is doing his duty perfectly.”

Both Aquilani and Melo were on target at the Stadio Olimpico in Turin, while Milos Krasic had a hand in three of the four goals.

“Krasic is settling into the system and movement, while we are all giving him a helping hand to deliver.

“He is very aggressive in the one-against-one, really knows how to attack the space and can be devastating.

“Krasic is an important player doing the best with his characteristics and his support at the moment is crucial, even if he cannot always be 100 per cent.”

Lecce did have some great chances to score and Del Neri insists that is only normal.

“It would be an arrogant utopia to think we could allow our opponents no scoring opportunities at all.

“We must not forget that Lecce were in good shape after a draw in Palermo and win over Catania.”
