Juventus have confirmed that the comments attributed to Claudio Marchisio in his Instagram account are fake.
The Bianconeri midfielder was reported to have claimed that he 'meant to offence' following remarks to Corriere della Sera regarding his 'antipathy' towards Napoli on Thursday.
But the club have since admitted that the Instagram page in which the apology was made is in fact not the player's official account.
