Coach Massimiliano Allegri and goalscorer Fabio Miretti comment on Juventus' victory over Fiorentina at the Artemio Franchi Stadium.
"Playing here in Florence is complicated and difficult, Fiorentina move a lot, they press high and lead you to play matches like tonight's; they also encourage you to "split" the game, because they play with many elements above the line of the ball, but in that case they can then become dangerous. In the second half, however, we were better, we didn't concede any big chances.
"Moise Kean played a really good game this evening but Arek Milik and Dusan Vlahovic were also very important; I'm happy for Fabio Miretti, who is often criticised for his performances, but I know that he has important qualities and has the right mentality. Daniele Rugani is very calm, he has always done well, while Federico Gatti is growing and still has room for improvement.
"The championship? I always continue to think that Inter, Milan and Napoli are ahead of us, and we must have great respect for these sides; but I see a beautiful spirit; in these last two victories we have shown different things, last week a good technical match, tonight a difficult match. We still have things to improve, for example when going away on a two-on-two counterattacks. Inter? We first have Cagliari on Saturday and in any case the match against Inter will mean nothing, apart from the prestige of the match: it's still early. However, I know that I have a good group of guys who have a great desire to improve."
"I've been waiting for this for a long time, it's a great feeling, now I hope more will come, I would like to find continuity. But the most important thing is to have brought home the three points. Our points tally? The are added up in May, we have to score as many points as possible towards our objective, then we'll see."
