Conte: 'Goal was my fault'

Antonio Conte has taken the blame for Parma’s equaliser at the Stadio Tardini. “Juventus deserved to win.”

The Bianconeri were held to a 1-1 draw after Mirko Vucinic’s dummy was intercepted for a Nicola Sansone counter-attack.

“The goal was my fault, because I called the dummy when Vucinic was on the one-on-one,” revealed Conte.

“Juventus deserved to win considering everything we did today, but were playing against a tough side and give credit to Parma."

With one point from the last two rounds, Juve's lead at the top has been sliced to just three points.

“The season isn’t over yet, we must fight to the end and meet dangerous teams like Lazio and Milan.

“I must say that if last Sunday I was angry about the performance against Sampdoria, today I am happy with the opportunities we created.

“On some occasions we got the final pass wrong because we were a little frenetic. We always try to play constructive football and take risks, so it’s a shame we conceded that goal.”
