Donadoni: ‘We were a little naïve’

Roberto Donadoni believes his Bologna players were ‘a little naïve’ at times in their 3-0 defeat by Juventus.

The Rossoblu were comfortably beaten on home turf by Max Allegri’s side, with goals by Miralem Pjanic, Mario Mandzukic and Blaise Matuidi.

Speaking post-match, the former Italy Coach admitted his team made mistakes when they could not afford to make any.

“I’d say that today was one of those matches in which you can’t make any mistakes,” Donadoni reflected.

“Juventus stopped us doing what we are good at. When it’s difficult to be at your best, it becomes fundamental to not give anything away.

“In some situations we managed the ball a little naively. Then, if you go behind it becomes difficult.

“We tried our best, but today we played against a tough team.”
