Moggi: 'Juve must accept defeats'

Former director Luciano Moggi hits out at the critics after Juventus' 4-2 defeat to Milan. ‘Show me the table’.

Juventus had the chance to increase the gap down to Lazio at second in Milan, but the Rossoneri stunned Maurizio Sarri’s men with an impressive performance to turn 0-2 into a 4-2 win at San Siro.

But Moggi claimsthe Old Lady faithful ‘must also accept defeat’ and points at the standings when he hears criticism of Juventus’ performances in 2019-20.

“After hearing all the critics, I read the newspapers and said: ‘Show me the table’,” Moggi told Radio Bianconera. “I thought we had been surpassed but I saw that we are first, so maybe someone is wrong in their reviews.

“If Juventus are first, it means that they have done what they need to do. Unfortunately, a bag game happens.”

Moggi claims the Bianconeri were too relaxed after having seen Lazio lose 2-1 to Lecce earlier in the day.

“Juve relaxed after the Lecce result, then found a gap with [Adrien] Rabiot, then [Cristiano] Ronaldo cleverly increased the lead to 2-0 and Juventus acquired the peace that you can’t have in football.

“Last night, the problem wasn’t in defence but in attack. When [Paulo] Dybala is there, they are superior in numbers. Yesterday, that was missing.

“In front of us were a livelier opponent, we must also accept defeats.”
