Enrique said: â€œI did not see it as a risk. Donâ€™t forget Totti was playing in the Coppa Italia game here and we lost 3-0. Itâ€™s too easy to talk about decisions afterwards. Juventus have great quality and physicality, so I thought it was best to adopt a more physical approach and reserve Totti for the next game.
â€œIt was a game that I thought required more stamina and strength, so I believed this was the right line-up for the occasion. After those first eight minutes, it made no difference who was on the pitch. We had two trequartisti, Fabio Borini and Miralem Pjanic.
â€œI have played a few games in my career and know intensity is crucial. Itâ€™s true we are struggling to find that intensity and tonight Juve were more intense. I donâ€™t think we are four goals different to Juve, but tonight that was the case."
