Juventus defender Andrea Barzagli has taken a swipe at Napoli, noting “teams are more remembered for what they win than how they play.”
Juve are still competing for Serie A, the Coppa Italia and Champions League with only two months of the season left, while Napoli risk ending the campaign without any silverware, despite their early momentum.
“We’ll never be able to play like Napoli and neither could they play like us,” he told Tuttosport after the Bianconeri turned around their Champions League last-16 tie with Tottenham Hotspur.
“They’re different to us, they play a different style and are different in terms of physique.
“However, what ultimately count are the history books. Teams are more remembered for what they win than how they play.
“If it was the other way round, everyone would want to play for Barcelona or Ajax, but we have our characteristics and as long as we keep winning, that’s fine.”
