I’d jeer Zeman, says ‘fan’ Vucinic

Mirko Vucinic has admitted that if he was a Bianconero fan at the Juventus Stadium on Saturday then he would jeer Roma boss Zdenek Zeman.

Zeman is an unpopular figure in Turin given his history of controversial remarks about the Old Lady of Italian football.

“I would whistle him if I was a Juventus fan,” the forward told La Stampa. “However, as I’m a player, I’ll go and shake his hand as I owe him a lot.”

The two men worked together in the past at Lecce, a spell which saw the Montenegro international catch the eye.

“I have a positive memory of Zeman,” the striker said in another interview with Sky Sport Italia. “I scored 19 League goals with him.

“He taught me a lot, but I then grew year after year and other Coaches also taught me something new.”

Tomorrow’s match will be a special one for the player, who joined Juve in 2011, given his past as a Roma player.

“I have some great memories of Roma,” he added. “My biggest regret there was not winning the Scudetto.

“Why did I leave? I decided to go because a few things happened which I didn’t like.”
