The Nerazzurri defeated Juventus at Meazza and announced that the handover of the crown in the Apennines could take place this season. What is hurting more is a desperate game in the big Serie A derby. Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanović didn't have much job, and the guests from Turin can be happy that they haven't taken another ball out of their goal.
The young expert on the bench of the Old Lady, Andrea Pirlo, admitted that this was a terrible game for his team. "Simply, we didn't step on the field, we were very bad. We were afraid of Inter's attacking game, so our minds focused only on defense.
We weren't too aggressive. We allowed Inter to take the initiative and then it was devastating for us. We didn't have aggression or determination ", said Pirlo after the match for Sky Italy. Juve had a few mistakes in this championship, but the debutant on the bench says that this is the worst edition of his team since the beginning of the season.
"It's a bad defeat, we couldn't play worse than this, but we have to raise our heads and prepare for Wednesday and the Super Cup against Napoli."
The former player of the three biggest clubs in Italy, Inter, Milan, and Juventus, says that the goal remains the same, and that is to defend the title and that this defeat does not mean giving up on winning the title.
"Our ambitions remain the same. This is a painful defeat against a strong opponent, such things happen, but what I am disappointed with is the attitude of the players." "A team like Juventus must come here with a certain confidence and ambition, a desire to take the initiative and direct the game in a certain direction."
"But we were too soft. We were too slow in passing, and I mean our defenders first of all. We were too slow in the attack. We never really pulled Inter players out of their seats. We were too predictable." He says he takes responsibility for the failure.
"The coach is always the first to take the blame when the team did not do what we planned. That means that the players did not understand the plan," Pirlo concluded. Juve is now seven points behind Milan's clubs, but the Italian championship is still open when it comes to the fight for the title in Serie A.
Inter and Milan have the best chances so far and it will finally be interesting to see one Milan club win the title, of course, if that happens
