Vucinic sorry and fined for red card

Mirko Vucinic has apologised for the red card he picked up against Bologna, that his teammates believe cost them the win.

The Montenegrin international had put Juventus ahead on Wednesday night before picking up two yellow cards - the first for dissent, the second on the stroke of half-time for a foul on the halfway line.

Gianluigi Buffon and Andrea Barzagli were amongst those to come out after the game and suggest, without criticising their teammate, that the No 14's dismissal was pivotal to the Bianconeri dropping two points through Daniele Portanova's second-half equaliser.

Tuttosport report that Vucinic apologised to the team and Coach, whilst Antonio Conte fined and then spoke to him about the incident before training on Thursday.
