Former Juventus coach Fabio Capello has said that everything is still open in the race for the Serie A title, according to a report in the Italian media today.
Speaking during an interview with TMW, the former Juventus and England manager suggested that the title race in Italy is far from over and it will take a lot of personality for the players to perform with so much pressure on them.
“Everything is still open, in the most absolute way. When you start playing with the pressure of having to win it is not easy. It takes great personality.”
Inter are now two points behind AC Milan without a game in hand following the surprise defeat to Bologna at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara on Wednesday night. The Nerazzurri will try and get back to winning ways by beating Udinese at the Dacia Arena on Sunday evening.
When asked about what went wrong for the Italian national team in their bid to qualify for the World Cup, Fabio Capello focused on the fine margins such as missed penalties.
“We played with the idea of being the best and not with the humility we have shown in the other games. Now, however, we must start rebuilding with that spirit and mentality with which we won the European Championships.
“Even if, analysing the results, we are out of the World Cup for two missed penalties: this is the truth. With the penalties we won the European Championship and with the penalties we stayed out of the World Cup.”
