Vucinic: 'A team victory'

Mirko Vucinic scored in a 4-2 Juventus Super Cup win over Napoli, but insisted “it was a victory from the team.”

The Montenegro international came off the bench for the second half to score and also earn a penalty.

“One man does not change a game,” Vucinic told the official Juventus website.

“It is the group that came out and fought back, as we have done so many times. It was a victory from the team.

“We went behind twice against a strong side, but recovered the situation with character. We start the season on the right foot.

“I want to dedicate the victory to the Juventus fans and my family, while of course we are also happy for Antonio Conte.”

Napoli caused controversy when they boycotted the presentation ceremony in protest at the red cards for Goran Pandev, Juan Camilo Zuniga and Walter Mazzarri.

“Everyone can do what they want, but after the Coppa Italia Final in Rome we stayed on the pitch and applauded Napoli as they lifted the trophy.”
