Andrea Stramaccioni demands respect following Juventus victory

Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni says that his team's 3-1 victory over Juventus this evening will send a message that they are genuine title contenders.

Inter Milan boss Andrea Stramaccioni has demanded that Juventus show respect to his team after their 3-1 victory in Turin.

The Nerazzurri halted the Bianconeri's 49-game unbeaten run thanks to a double from Diego Milito and Rodrigo Palacio's last-minute strike.

Stramaccioni said that he did not lose faith in his team's ability to turn the game around when trailing 1-0 at the half-time break.

"This result will send a signal," Football Italia has quoted Stramaccioni as saying. "We came here to the Juventus Stadium against a team unbeaten in 49 rounds and attacked them with a trident.

"At half time, I was certain we'd get the game back on track and even win it, because I saw the way it was going. The whole team had belief and was fired up during the break. Inter are growing and that is the important thing.

"Juve keep talking about what happened on the pitch, on the pitch, on the pitch – well, Inter beat them on the pitch. We won regardless of incidents, which I promised I won't talk about, so I think we deserve some respect."

Victory for Inter closes the gap on leaders Juve to just one point.
