Tomorrow is important but there are still many games, there is time to recover. We cannot think that in a match we will win or lose the championship ”.
Will Dybala play?
“He will be available, he is fine and has had two training sessions with the team. We are almost complete in terms of availability, it is important because I need everyone as happened in Russia where whoever entered was decisive ”.

With these 5 changes they are different games, whoever is on the bench when he enters must enter with the right mind, must live the game as if he were playing. Maybe at first I knew the boys less, now I am facilitated by this. The credit is theirs, they come in and make an important contribution “.
In terms of tension, how has your way of approaching the game changed?
“Let’s say the expectation of a great match. Playing at San Siro in an imposing stadium will have to be a beautiful evening. It must be more beautiful for us trying to get a result because a good evening and not getting a result is not so good. After two years it is exciting for me. You play for this type of challenge, beautiful to live and which have the advantage that they prepare themselves. Tomorrow evening there is no need for me to tell the players that it is important, they know it too ”.
Will it be important to see Chiellini on the pitch? Church must rest?
“The formation I have yet to decide. Yesterday we had a good workout, maybe not even today I will decide but I will really do it tomorrow morning. Chiesa also played a good game the other day, he shot several times. Chiellini is ready to play, Bonucci, De Ligt and Rugani are doing well. When De Ligt is ready to play on the center-right, three defenders will also be able to play, for now they play in two. We still have five games ahead, there will be room for everyone ”.
Do you get into trouble when you have to play the game?
“It’s not that Juve is more at ease when they don’t have to play the game. One has to stop, pass and unmark well. At certain moments we make these things wrong, we always have to activate our heads. In training everyone has to work so as not to make mistakes. a ball, but it is impossible that he is never wrong. But we have to work for this and there are times when we make technical mistakes that should not be made “.
Were you close to Inter?
“In two years a lot of water has passed under the bridges, they put me close to one another and close to each other. I made the choice of Juventus and I am happy”.
Can Inter “kill you”?

Do you agree with Bonucci on Ronaldo?
“When you have a player like Ronaldo who scores 30 goals this season it is normal for the team to lean on him. It is normal that without Cristiano everyone has more responsibility and we have to find goals from the players we have ”.
Match suitable for Bernardeschi?
“Tomorrow you have to play well technically, they are strong also physically. There is a need for defensive attention. Then we play in a stadium where they will be very supported, you will have to be lucid, killer with the ball. And whoever takes the field will have to fight above all at the ‘Start”.
What player is Dzeko?

How is Rabiot?
“I see Rabiot today, you have to see how he got out of this situation also because without training it is difficult”.
