Del Neri claims that Juventus need to be organised against Inter.
Juventus coach Luigi Del Neri says that his side need to play with intensity and maintain organisation if they are to defeat Inter in the Derby d'Italia on Sunday evening.

Del Neri told the press on Saturday, “We’re in good shape and the group is stronger and more balanced, having recovered some injured players and through the recent signings we’ve made.”

“We need to play well, with a high intensity. It’s a great match, full of passion, emotion and one that’s of extreme importance to our fans and the club.

"[Former Inter coach Rafael] Benitez is a great manager but struggled with injuries. Since arriving, Leonardo has done a fine job, helped by the likes of Zanetti who is an exemplary player in every sense.”

On the role to be played by defender Giorgio Chiellini and midfielder Claudio Marchisio, Del Neri remarked, “At the moment, Giorgio will play left-back until our other left sided options regain fitness. We’ll see what happens, for me a player is a player.

“The organisation of the team is the most crucial element, but wherever Marchisio’s played he’s been effective and scored important goals. He’s a key player for us in any role."
