Del Neri: "Aquilani to show his worth"

Posted on 12/11/2010


Juventus boss Gigi Del Neri expects Alberto Aquilani to show his worth when the midfielder faces his former club Roma tomorrow in Serie A. 

Just one point separates the two sides in the standings with Juventus occupying fifth place and Roma sixth after the opening 11 games of the season. 

“Tomorrow we’ll go out on the pitch to fight and to win,” Del Neri said. 

“Our objective is that of improving game after game. 

“The match against Brescia was a missed opportunity. Juve are a compact group and we are working well. 

“Amauri, Felipe Melo and Armand Traore have all be selected. 

“Aquilani is calm. He will try and show all of his worth against his former team. 

“There is a team equipped to win and it will fight until the end. 

“The match against Roma will be good to watch. Up until now the League has been very balanced and no one has shown themselves to be stronger than the others. 

“Every point will be useful, like for example the one we got in Brescia on Wednesday. 

“It will be an important game against Roma who did well last year and reinforced with the signing of Marco Borriello. 

“They have decisive players like Francesco Totti and Mirko Vucinic, but also interesting youngsters like Leandro Greco. 

“They have everything to fight until the end. Ranieri has done well everywhere and is confirming that in Rome thanks to his experience.”
