Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon made a pointed reference to Roma. “Winners find a way, losers find an excuse.”
The captain was speaking to the official Carrarese website, the club he co-owns, in a pep talk to the players.
“Winners find a way, losers find an excuse. It seems to me a motto that fits in well with everyday life as well as sport.
“I advise you not give life to excuses or alibis as mediocre people would, but on the contrary roll your sleeves up and get to work.”
Many have seen this speech as a pointed reference to Roma and their reaction to Sunday’s 3-2 defeat in Turin.
