Juventus Coach Luigi Del Neri Turns Referee Debate Into Cagliari Focus

Posted by admin on Friday, 4 February 2011

Del Neri calls for change on and off the pitch ahead of Cagliari.
Juventus coach Luigi Del Neri is eager to move on from the debate generated in the aftermath of their 2-1 loss at Palermo as he focuses on Cagliari.

"I must say I won't change idea on what I said on Wednesday, but I want to leave behind the referee factor," he told the press ahead of tomorrow's trip to the Sant'Elia.

"We must think about Cagliari as it is a fundamental game for us and it can give us guarantees for the future.

"We could go on forever about what has happened to us this year, but let's leave things to the football now."

Back to back defeats against Udinese and Palermo have dampened hopes for a top four finish, but Del Neri remains of the belief he can enforce change.

"We have to start getting results and we need to change gear on this, but we have to play with rhythm and intensity.

"The problems have been a lack of attention and there are times when things don't go well for you," he added.

"But I am convinced we can get back up. Champions League? It depends on many things, but what is important as that we are up there in the final rush."
