Blanchard: 'I'm a Juventino!'

Leonardo Blanchard earned Frosinone’s historic first Serie A point against Juventus, but reveals he’s a die-hard Bianconeri fan.

The 27-year-old defender nodded in from a corner with almost the last move of the game in last night’s 1-1 draw in Turin.

“It was an emotional moment, especially as I am a Juventino,” grinned Blanchard to Tuttosport.

“Just think, only three months ago I was in Berlin with the Viking ultras, all painted in black and white, to attend the Champions League Final against Barcelona.

“It’s incredible. I dedicate the goal to my family and my girlfriend Fulvia, who was in Turin. This is a dream from childhood come true.”
