Marchisio: We Wanted To Keep Winning

Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio is disappointed not to have won against Lazio even after being a man down.

The Turin side did claw their way back into the game and force a 1-1 draw in Rome after Gigi Buffon was sent off after 25 minutes for bringing down Miroslav Klose in the box to concede a penalty.

The draw means Juve’s run of 12 consecutive Serie A victories has come to an end and gives Roma a chance to cut down their lead to six points if the Romans beat Hellas Verona on Sunday.

The Italian international midfielder admitted that despite having to play majority of the game with 10 players, they wanted to keep on winning.

“It’s a shame, as we wanted to keep winning, especially coming back to Rome three days after the Coppa Italia defeat to Roma,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“We had great character and kept believing in ourselves. It’s a pity that our tempo was too slow when we were 11 against 11, then with 10 it brought out our character.”

“In the Buffon red card, two and a half years ago I had a similar incident against Inter and the goalkeeper wasn’t sent off, so I was asking the referee what the difference was.”

“It’s a sign for us, that we are alive and kicking and always want to reach the result.”
