Del Neri: 'It's easier with strikers...'

Gigi Del Neri is hardly surprised that Juventus got back to winning ways. “It's easier when you actually have strikers...”

Although Jorge Martinez started in attack, it was January signings Alessandro Matri and Luca Toni who netted in the 3-1 win at Cagliari.

“We always said that Juve paid the price for not having the right players in the right place, especially in the box,” said the Coach.

“Both Martinez and Milos Krasic did well interpreting their roles, but we changed to a 4-3-1-2 giving Alessandro Del Piero and Matri more freedom.

“Do not forget that at Palermo we only had Martinez as a reserve in attack and he's not really a forward. We should have Vincenzo Iaquinta back soon too, so it's easier when you actually have strikers...

“It's not simple to win at Cagliari, so this result gives us great confidence for the future, even if we have to keep our feet on the ground. We know we're on the right track.”
