Juve support Conte’s claims

Juventus have released a statement backing the comments from Coach Antonio Conte and midfielder Andrea Pirlo, that the club deserve equal treatment.

The pair, along with Pavel Nedved, have been vocal in complaining about the failure of referees to award the Bianconeri penalty-kicks this season.

The outcry followed the latest penalty appeals against Parma, that Conte claimed was the latest example of match officials being afraid to award the club spot-kicks.

“Juventus football club confirms and supports the statements by Coach Antonio Conte, director Pavel Nedved and Andrea Pirlo after the game,” read the official club note.

“The club hopes that equal treatment, which they are pursuing and will pursue at every ground, is always applied in accordance with the rules of the game of football.”
