Chiellini: 'Juve were threatening this'

Giorgio Chiellini admits Juventus “had been threatening this sort of mess for a few games” after fumbling a lead to lose 2-1 against Manchester United.

The Bianconeri had been in complete control and took the lead through a Cristiano Ronaldo wonder volley, but set plays turned it all around in stoppages.

“We want to go all the way and if we are to do that, we must learn from this sort of mistake,” Chiellini told Sky Sport Italia.

“We’ve been threatening this sort of mess for a few games, to be honest, as we get too complacent and run risks that are totally unnecessary.

“Maybe now we’ll get our heads down and focus the way we need to in every single match, taking nothing for granted.

“We had been in total control, but were very wasteful and forgot the details, because we knew where Manchester United could be dangerous.

“If we’re going to lose Champions League games like this, it’s best we do it now rather than later on.”
