Leonardi: Juve lack style

Parma director general Pietro Leonardi has criticised Juventus for the way they have conducted themselves since Wednesday’s 0-0 draw.

The Old Lady left the Stadio Tardini infuriated after they were denied what they believed to be two clear penalties.

Boss Antonio Conte, director Pavel Nedved and midfielder Andrea Pirlo all criticised the referee’s decisions after the game, while the club issued a statement last night.

“Juventus haven’t painted a pretty picture,” Leonardi, a former employee of the Turin giants, told the Corriere dello Sport.

“Juve reacted in the wrong manner. A while ago we all said that we had to calm down, instead there have been controversies and outbursts made against referees.

“Mistakes can happen over the space of 90 minutes, but you need to show balance and style after a game. Juve lacked that.”
