'Don't compare Juve to Inter treble'

Esteban Cambiasso insists Juventus cannot be compared to Inter’s treble winners of 2010. “We didn’t have a superstar like Cristiano Ronaldo…”

Cambiasso’s Inter remain the only Italian side to win Serie A, the Coppa Italia and Champions League in the same season, although Juve’s comeback against Atletico Madrid has prompted several - including Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola - to tip them for European glory this term.

“I could put my arm around my teammates to fire them up before big games, but I certainly couldn’t score three goals,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“We didn’t have a superstar like Cristiano Ronaldo or Messi: they’re two unique players who make the difference.

“Instead we had a player like Eto’o, who came after winning the treble with Barcelona.

“Unlike Juve we didn’t make any comebacks, but knocking out Chelsea gave us awareness at a time when it was impossible for us to go through.

“The parallels between us and Juve aren’t there.”
