Gasperini: Juve aren't a bad team

Gian Piero Gasperini thinks that Juventus are going through a bad patch but that doesn't necessarily make them a bad team.

The Old Lady has lost back-to-back games in Serie A to Lecce and Bologna.

Juventus President Andrea Agnelli is angry and the club's personnel are up for review again.

The Bianconeri currently lie seventh in the table and risk not qualifying for next year's Champions League.

"Juve are no worse than Napoli, Udinese and Palermo," Gasperini said.

"They suffer from 'big club' syndrome. If they are far from the title race it's trouble for Juventus, but they can recover.

"Udinese are doing well. For years they have signed the best not by seeing players on YouTube, DVD, video or trusting the word of agents, but by studying them live."
