Antonio Conte was glad Juventus took revenge on Roma in the Coppa Italia and particularly for Alessandro Del Piero’s goal.
“We are doing well and really wanted to go forward in this competition,” said the Coach after a 3-0 quarter-final victory.
“In recent years Roma had always eliminated us from the Coppa, but this time we got to knock them out. I am also happy because those who haven’t played as much this season showed they were ready and that is to their credit.”
The goals were scored by Emanuele Giaccherini and Del Piero, the captain curling a glorious trademark right-foot effort into the far top corner.
“Giaccherini deserves my faith in him. A few years ago he was in Serie C and now with hard work he’s living a fairy tale,” continued Conte.
“I’m happy that Del Piero scored, as he was searching for this goal for a long time.”
It is Del Piero’s final season for the club and his first goal at the new Juventus Stadium.
