Lamela hails ´true great´ Pirlo

2 September 2012 06:45

Roma midfielder Erik Lamela has labelled Andrea Pirlo as the key to Juventus' bid for a second successive Serie A title.

Zdenek Zeman's side take on Inter at the San Siro on Sunday as they look to bounce back from last week's 2-2 draw against Catania, while Juventus travel to Udinese, with Lamela paying homage to the veteran Pirlo.

"Pirlo is a true great, and Juventus have an advantage with him," the 20-year-old told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Roma are also hoping for the Scudetto however. We and Inter will be waiting directly behind them. Our match at San Siro promises to be a lot of fun.

"There will be plenty of goals, and I believe we can aim to win."

The Argentina international has come under criticism from fans for his lacklustre performances since arriving from River Plate in August last year, but he remains unfazed.

"The fans say I'm paid too much? I don't mind such comments really, criticism now and then for a player is natural," Lamela said.
