Vucinic calms Juve enthusiasm

Mirko Vucinic warns Juventus fans not to get ahead of themselves after beating Inter. “If we lose in Naples, it'd be a huge disappointment.”

The Bianconeri are clear at the top of the table after their 2-1 victory at San Siro on Saturday night.

“It's too early to judge what this team can do. If we have three points here and then lose in Naples next weekend, it'd be a huge disappointment, so we must wait before talking about objectives,” said the striker.

He opened the scoring in the Derby d'Italia, joined on the sheet by Douglas Maicon and Claudio Marchisio.

Milan won 3-2 away to Roma and moved temporarily into second place, just two points shy of Juventus, to revive their Scudetto push.

“It changes little, as we have to focus only on our own results. Having said that, I am not afraid of the word Scudetto. We are the leaders, there is quality and a strong rapport with the Coach. It's important that we managed to beat both Milan and Inter.

“Everyone here gives their heart and soul, as without a strong team ethic you'll never get to the top of the table.

“However, I would not rule Inter out of the title race. With Claudio Ranieri at Roma we were further behind than this and you all know how that went...

“Why did I hug Marco Storari while celebrating? In training all my shots were going off target, so he jokingly said I just needed one in a match situation. That proved to be the case and I wanted to thank him.”
