Pepe: 'Juve angry, not depressed'

Simone Pepe says the feeling within the Juventus camp is “of anger rather than depression” as they seek a comeback.

The Bianconeri have picked up just one point from the last four games and take on relegation battlers Brescia on Sunday.

“We are not downhearted, as the team has a feeling of anger rather than depression at the results,” said the winger.

“Now we must focus on victory against Brescia this weekend. In this difficult time, the objective is to get as many points as possible in the remaining nine rounds.”

Qualification for the Champions League is looking increasingly unlikely, as they are seventh in the table and nine points adrift of fourth-placed Udinese.

“The fans are disappointed, but just as they are having a bad time, so are we. The supporters want to win and so do we.

“Right from the start of the season, though, it was clear this was a team under construction.”
