Cobolli Fires Broadside At Inter

Juventus president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli has reconfirmed his faith in coach Claudio Ranieri, but also launches a stinging attack on the Nerazzurri.

The Old Lady have been plunged into an early crisis, after the dire home defeat by Sicilian club Palermo at the Stadio Olimpico last weekend and ex-Chelsea boss Ranieri has come under fire for his tactical choices and a meager total of 5 goals scored thus far.

But the Bianconeri directors have stressed that Ranieri's job is not on the line and he will lead the side on the daunting trip to face Napoli at the Stadio San Paolo after the international break.

And Cobolli Gigli is now turning his attentions to arch-rivals Inter in order to explain the difference between the Nerazzurri's way of doing things and theirs.

"I have sold Zlatan Ibrahimovic because he asked for €6m wages per season in Serie B and this season he would have commanded €12m," he was quoted as saying in the Gazzetta dello Sport.

"We are not Inter, because they have a wealthy patron, whereas we have a sound project. Should Moratti get fed up one day, it is the end of the road for them, but we will keep marching on."

Tensions between the two clubs have been at a boiling point ever since Juve got demoted to Serie B in 2006 and were stripped of two Scudetti, one of which consequently handed to the Via Durini side.


Juve pays their players more or less the same as Inter does and they have also spent almost the same amounts for the transfers this summer, so what is this desperate man talking about, i don't really understand.

Words of envy from a bitter man.

If Juventus wants to start playing mind games with Inter, they should try more seriously. Instead Gigli sounds like a little boy crying after a stolen lollipop.
