Felipe Melo delighted with Juventus’ show of force against Milan
Juventus midfielder Felipe Melo has shown his claws and strength after describing their 2-1 win over Milan as a lion’s performance.
Fabio Quagliarella and Alessandro Del Piero fired the Bianconeri ahead at San Siro before a late Zlatan Ibrahimovic header provided a thrilling finale.
“Everyone was a lion tonight. “We were 11 lions on the pitch,” Melo told Sky Sport Italia after the game.
“No one believed in Juventus after last season. But we showed we are a great team. It’s a win of strength and character.”
And having vividly promulgated their message of Scudetto intent on the pitch, Melo backed it with enthusiasm off it.
“This is a new Juventus. We are on the right track. We can go all the way for sure with hard work,” he added.
“Everyone has a mentality to win the league. We know Inter and Milan have something more, but we are on the right track.”
