TURIN – A visibly happy Andrea Ranocchia
spoke to Inter Channel after the Nerazzurri’s superb victory over
Juventus: "It was amazing, quite amazing. I found it really difficult because Juve are a top team and they made it hard for us, but we dug deep and
came away with three huge points. Marchisio causing us problems? We knew how good
they are at making forward runs, that’s what they excel at. They
get lots of men into the box, but Samir did brilliantly and after
that save we came back to life. We’ve got a lot better at dealing with games
over 90 minutes. We knew it was going to be long and that we mustn’t
lose our focus."
defender was asked if he expected the evening to turn out like it did: "I hoped
it would. It always feels better when you come from behind because you also send
out a signal about how strong you are. Was it better than the derby?
It feels as good as winning the derby because Milan and Juve are our
historical rivals. We’ll go for it now while trying to hone our weaknesses
and our strengths."
