Juve Scudetto party cut short

Gigi Buffon lifted the Serie A trophy, but Juventus celebrations were cut short by a pitch invasion.

The squad was called out one by one and their names chanted by the crowd after today’s 3-0 victory over Cagliari.

Antonio Conte was the penultimate man out and given a standing ovation by the fans, who called for him to stay on.

Captain Buffon lifted the trophy to the sky, the Bianconeri’s third in a row, but the planned run round the pitch with the silverware was cut short by a pitch invasion.

The Curva Sud burst its banks and sent stewards flying, sending players, their wives and children running into the tunnel.

It was also reported that Carlos Tevez was particularly angry at being manhandled by over-enthusiastic fans.

The party therefore had to continue in a sedate manner inside the locker room, as milk replaced champagne with players holding their kids.

Meanwhile, the ultras were seen trying to break apart the goal mouth to take home souvenirs from the Juventus Stadium.

Juventus will now go through the city streets in an open-top bus.
