Lippi guarantees 100% from
December 4, 1996
Juventus coach Marcello Lippi
is adamant that his team will give 100% effort tonight when they face Fenerbachce
in the Champions' League.
Manchester United are looking
for a favour from the Serie A giants when they tackle Rapid Vienna in the
other group game.
Lippi will not name his squad
until an hour before the game but is likely to leave the likes of Alen
Boksic, Didier Deschamps, Vladimir Jugovic and Ciro Ferrara on the sidelines.
Juventus have already qualified
for the quarter-finals but Lippi is anxious they put on a good show.
He said: "Alex Ferguson and
my good friend Brian Kidd should know that we don't want to put a stain
on our reputation.
"I will field the best formation
I can in keeping with our situation regarding injuries.''
Certainly Alessandro Del
Piero will be fired up against the Turkish side. He scored the winner at
Old Trafford from the penalty spot and is anxious to win the prize for
the competition's leading scorer.
Such is the strength of Juve's
squad that most of their fringe players would be automatic selections at
other Serie A clubs.
And Lippi maintains that
they will anxious to try and further their reputations tonight especially
as they are on home soil.
