Del Neri: 'We couldn't change game'

Gigi Del Neri insists “with the men at our disposal, we could not change the match” after another Juventus home defeat.

The Bianconeri had taken the lead through Claudio Marchisio, but Cristian Zapata and Alexis Sanchez secured a 2-1 Udinese victory.

“With a little more care we could've avoided the goals, but with the men at our disposal, we could not change the match,” shrugged Del Neri.

“We simply couldn't avoid the way this game was going to go. Tomorrow we'll talk it over and see what we can do to improve.”

Juve were decimated by injuries that left Alessandro Del Piero as the only fit striker, joined by makeshift forward Jorge Martinez.

Tomorrow is transfer deadline day and the club is active on the market, but have seen their offer for Cagliari's Alessandro Matri turned down.

“It will be crucial to have some important options in attack, as at the moment we don't have anyone who can give a real contribution.

“We don't have the strength to turn a game around.”

However, the Coach was angry with the referee and assistants when two Maurizio Domizzi fouls on Milos Krasic were not even given as free kicks.

"It's not fair that the referees now judge every Krasic incident while thinking about Bologna," he said, referring to the ban for diving to win a penalty.

"Krasic has paid the price for that mistake and it's not right that he has to continue paying for it. Domizzi could've had two yellow cards for those challenges tonight."
