Chiellini: “We’ll pick ourselves up”

The defender refuses to dwell on tonight’s loss at Juventus Stadium: “We’re still top of the league and have plenty more to give”

Giorgio Chiellini has called on his Bianconeri team-mates to bounce back from tonight’s home defeat with a win on Wednesday against Danish champions Nordsjaelland.

Chiellini said: “A defeat always hurts, but when you lose it’s best to get straight back into the action. We’ll use tomorrow to work out why we lost in order to avoid making the same mistakes again. In any case we’re still top of the league, we’re in the Champions League and we’ve got plenty more to give.”

The defender, speaking to the media in the wake of the home loss to Inter, believes the game was decided by the Nerazzurri’s ruthless counter-attacking approach.

The 28-year-old added: “They looked to capitalise on the counter and we did well in the first half to prevent them from doing so. Their choice to play with three strikers came from the desire to take advantage on the break and split our team in two.”
