Simone Pepe accepts he'll be on the bench for Juventus unless there are injuries. “Milos Krasic deserves to play.”
The winger was one of the big summer signings on loan from Udinese and is an Italy international.
However, Pepe is finding himself more and more on the outskirts of the side now that Krasic has recovered from a ban and thigh strain.
“Krasic is a great player and at this moment in time he deserves to play,” he confessed in the Gazzetta dello Sport.
“That means I'll be on the bench. Never mind, there will be opportunities for everybody.”
The Bianconeri take on Fiorentina tonight amid growing title aspirations.
“The Scudetto? I don't even want to say it,” smiled the superstitious Pepe.
