Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio was delighted with his individual wonder goal in victory over Inter Milan.

Marchisio was beaming after his magnificent goal sent Inter crashing to only their second Serie A defeat of the season.

“I have to say that against Cagliari and in the first half tonight my legs weren't responding as well as I'd hoped,” he said after the 2-1 Juventus victory.

“I am working very hard in training to recover from my injury and always give my best for the team.

“As for the goal, I am happy above all for the team, but also for the fans and I must confess a little for myself.”

He added: “Our belief and conviction changed everything. Inter are a top club, we know that, but beating them tonight was very important.

“We must continue like this and not lose our path, without forgetting that Milan are also in front.”
