Juventus president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli was beaming after last night's triumph over AC Milan.

The victory laid bare Juve's Scudetto credentials and Cobolli Gigli enthused: "Amauri is a great champion and has played a magnificent game, but this time it fills me with pride the performance of the whole team.

"It was a wonderful game and I dedicate it to those who criticized us. I am talking to the media generally, which did not take into account that this is a team of the highest human values, even ahead of their football ability.

"Certainly, the season is still long, but a night like this gives us a good injection of enthusiasm."

He added: "We must remember that there were Claudio Marchisio and Paolo De Ceglie, two excellent young players. This is the response of Juventus to those who say we should spend to be competitive."
