Inter responded to Juventus’s demolition of Roma with an equally crushing win over rock-bottom Reggina yesterday to maintain their seven-point cushion at the top of the Serie A table.

And Nerazzurri coach Jose Mourinho complimented the Old Lady after the encounter, as they are pushing his side all the way.

“If he really said so, that’s an important recognition for Juve,” the Turin-based club's president, Giovanni Cobolli Gigli, stated this morning before entering the Hilton Hotel for an Italian Football Federation (FIGC) meeting.

“Our primary objective is to qualify for the Champions League again and do so regularly. As for the league, we will try and collect as many points as possible, just like we did against Roma.

“We will need to win them all and do our bit. Then the clash with Inter in Turin will be crucial.”

Midfielder Pavel Nedved has decided to quit at the end of the season, but there have been widespread calls for him to reconsider.

“I can just say that he keeps showing that he is among the greatest footballers in the world,” asserted Cobolli Gigli. “Will he play on? I heard that he doesn’t want to.”
