Krasic hat-trick has Del Neri insisting Juventus not dependent

Juventus coach Gigi del Neri saw Milos Krasic hit a hat-trick in yesterday's 4-2 victory over Cagliari.

The day before, Del Neri declared Juve "Krasic-dependent", but now is backtracking on those comments.

“No, we are not Krasic-dependent, as we mustn’t be dependent on any one player,” said Del Neri.

“The players have to focus only on working, then nobody doubts the quality of individuals. Krasic is an important player, that’s for sure.

The squad was rotated for tonight’s test, as Leandro Rinaudo, Alberto Aquilani, Amauri and Vincenzo Iaquinta were drafted in.

“We chose a more physical squad partly to rest some players, but also as physical strength is an important thing to have in Serie A.

“Amauri and Iaquinta can become a partnership, as they have complementary characteristics. They just need to work on that rapport."
