Zanetti: "We threw the kitchen sink at them"

Nerazzurri skipper to Inter Channel: "They scored their second when we were having our best spell. Disappointed to lose because we played well"

MILAN – Javier Zanetti shared his thoughts with Inter Channel after this afternoon's defeat to Juventus: "It was a good performance in the end. We're disappointed to lose because they scored their second when we were having our best spell. We threw the kitchen sink at them trying to find an equaliser but we just couldn't get it despite creating some great chances. It's a shame but at least we can take heart from the performance that we produced against a great team like Juventus. Now we need to immediately refocus on the next game."

The skipper was asked for his view on how Nicola Rizzoli refereed the match: "There were things that we saw differently but he decided otherwise," Zanetti replied. "It looked like a clear penalty on Cassano in the second half? The goal-line ref was put there to help out in situations like this. If he doesn't do that then there's not much point."

A comment on Esteban Cambiasso's first sending-off: "It was just a nasty foul, he made a late challenge. It's the first time he's been sent off in his career, I heard that somebody on TV said he deserves a five-match ban. Let's not blow it out of proportion, come on..."

Next up is the rescheduled game against Sampdoria at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris on Wednesday: "We need to find the strength to do as best as possible in the remaining games, find the strength to put in a good performance in Genoa like we did today against a top team like Juventus. Third place? We still have a few six-pointers to play and a game in hand. Let's see what happens between now and the end of the season."
