Gigi Del Neri is pleased with the victory in Sicily, but warns “this is why we need to complete the squad in January.”
Juventus consolidated third place with a 3-1 win at the Stadio Massimino this evening.
“The team did very well after the first 15 minutes in which Catania caused us problems,” said the Coach.
“We played good football and found our path to the goal. From then on, the match was on the right track for us.
“I will not look at the table, but I am satisfied with this result, the character and the quality. Don't forget Catania hadn't lost at home in a year.”
Del Neri did warn that Juve can only sustain this pace for so long amid an injury crisis.
“We are still missing so many players and this is why we need to complete the squad in January, so that we won't be left without options if there are injuries.
“Alberto Aquilani is going through a tough time, but we knew that would happen, as up until now he has given a lot to the side. Clearly a player cannot be 100 per cent all the time.”
