Juventus defender Nicola Legrottaglie has said the words every Bianconeri fan thought they would never hear - he has admitted that Inter are superior to them.
The Nerazzurri are running away with the title, boasting a nine point lead over Juve heading into round 31 of the Serie A campaign. Legrottaglie has done nothing to give his side hope of overhauling the reigning champions.
"Inter are superior to us," Legrottaglie told Juventus Channel.
"Sometimes this Juventus side hava a superficial approach to certain games. Look at the matches against Cagliari and Sampdoria. They were teams we should have beaten, but we dropped points.
"There was no attention against Chievo when we conceded three goals. In this sense it means we cannot compete with Inter. The Nerazzurri know how to be more concrete. They have a superior mentality to us."
Harsh words from the stopper, who should return from a recent back problem against Genoa later today. Legrottaglie's comments come just days after Mauro Camoranesi slammed his team-mates following the Chievo draw.
