Gianluigi Buffon has warned Juventus that “we cannot hide. We've got to end the season with honour.”
The Turin giants are in seventh place and risk missing out on Europe altogether, although the 2-1 win over Brescia ended a run of one point from four rounds.
“There are difficulties, but we cannot hide,” said the goalkeeper. “The players have talent and we've got to end the season with honour.
“If some of the Juventus players did better with Italy against Slovenia this week, then it's down to the psychological situation at the club.
“I am criticised for looking uncertain against Brescia, then hailed for my saves in Slovenia. Perhaps someone should ask why that is.”
