Ranieri delighted with two-goal Iaquinta after Juventus win

Juventus coach Claudio Ranieri was delighted with two-goal Vincenzo Iaquinta after their 4-1 thumping of Roma.

Juventus coach Claudio Ranieri was delighted with two-goal Vincenzo Iaquinta after their 4-1 thumping of Roma.

“Iaquinta needs to be used with his characteristics. We signed Amauri precisely because he is different from the other strikers at our disposal, so I am happy with how they have all contributed this season,” said Ranieri.

“I always put those in the best form on the field. Unfortunately Iaquinta always had these little setbacks just before he was meant to play, whether an injury or a cold. At least now he has fresh legs and can really push in these final months.”

Sebastian Giovinco is another option, although he now seems to be used only on the left side of midfield.

“Giovinco starts out from the left flank, but he doesn't need to stay there. I am convinced that with his teammates knowing where to find him and facing the goal, he can create some real danger.

“I am very happy with the squad at my disposal and the team spirit they possess. We all want to improve and are so hungry for the win, so that is the right attitude.”
