Agent defends Giovinco after jeers

Sebastian Giovinco’s agent is confident he will get back in shape and win over the Juventus fans after he was jeered.

The Atomic Ant missed several great scoring opportunities in Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Lazio and was insulted by a group of supporters who wanted him substituted rather than Fabio Quagliarella.

“There can be dissent, but I’d like to underline it was a small section and not the entire stadium,” agent Claudio Pasqualin told TMW.

Giovinco has scored five goals this season in 17 overall appearances, but in Serie A alone his ratio is a goal every 223 minutes of football.

“Seba’s time at Juve has been positive and the proof is there in the fact Antonio Conte considers him to be a first choice pick.

“Maybe he could’ve scored a few more goals, but he is aware of that too. At times it was down to bad luck, others the opposition goalkeeper, but Seba is relaxed.

“He has a cool head and the strong shoulders of a champion. This unlucky moment will pass. As for the jeers, even if they were coming from a small minority, it is all part of the game.”
