Milito would take out Pirlo

Inter’s Diego Milito has respect for the Juventus forward line, but he’s worried by the creativity of Andrea Pirlo.

“They have attackers of value,” he told the Corriere dello Sport ahead of this weekend’s clash in Turin.

“Mirko Vucinic, Alessandro Matri, Fabio Quagliarella, Marco Borriello and Alex Del Piero are all important players and they have experience.

“But Juve’s strength is in their organisation and their enthusiasm rather than in their individuality.

“Saying that, if there was one player I would take out of their team then that would be Pirlo. He makes the side tick.”

While Inter have been one of the biggest disappointments of the season, title-chasing Juventus have been a revelation after two consecutive seventh place finishes.

“I knew that they were a good side with a great Coach,” continued the Argentine international. “Juve have focused on their desire to win something after so many years without a trophy.

“For us, our mental approach will be important in this game. While true that running and intensity count, you won’t be able to play without a free mind.”
