Juventus coach Luigi Del Neri says his side must now solely focus on doing well in the league after being dumped out of the Coppa Italia.
Juventus coach Luigi Del Neri admitted the Bianconeri struggled against Roma in the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia.

The tactician believes his side failed to create enough chances in the 2-0 loss and said they will now focus on doing well in the Serie A.

"We did not play our best," bemoaned Del Neri to reporters after the match. "We produced little and if you cannot create scoring chances, you can't score.

"Roma are a team that have played together for a long period. Together, they have overcome many critical moments and are now returning to their best."

Del Neri went on to say that they were unlucky not to have been awarded a late penalty after Alessandro Del Piero went down in the box.

"The penalty was there. At the moment, we are not even lucky during these episodes. We did not deserve to win this evening.

"Now, we must focus solely on the league, hoping to recover some players who are not at full fitness," concluded Del Neri.
