Juventus Coach Luigi Del Neri Bemoans Fiorentina Draw

Gigi Del Neri praised his Juventus side for refusing to give in despite a disappointing draw against Fiorentina.
Juventus missed a golden opportunity to close in further on leaders Milan at the top of the Serie A standings, and coach Luigi Del Neri bemoaned a poor start following his side’s 1-1 draw against Fiorentina.

“We are still growing”, he declared to SkySport after the game.

“Fiorentina did well to take the lead and we were unable to find a leveller despite some good chances in the opening period.

“I saw some great character from my men who battled to the end and I think we got our just reward late on.

“However given our objectives these are two points dropped. We need to win games like these and whilst I’m not really interested in the standings we cannot afford to give our competitors such breathing space.

“We tried everything out there but it wasn’t to be this evening. When such is the case I can have little complaints because as a coach this is what I ask of my men.”
