Juventus have released a statement that doesn’t name anyone, but criticises gestures like those made by Jonathan Zebina and Felipe Melo towards the club’s fans.
Melo gestured the crowd to be quiet during Sunday’s match against Siena while Zebina gave Juventus’ travelling support the middle finger after being sent off at Craven Cottage last night as the Turin giants were humiliated 4-1 and knocked out of the Europa League by Fulham.
Franco Causio, the Bianconeri’s legendary former midfielder, launched a scathing attack on both players earlier today, calling their actions unworthy of a club like Juventus.
Soon afterwards, the Bianconeri released a communiqué that read: “The frustration for a very disappointing result does not justify behaviour that uselessly increases tension, also creating damage to the image of the club.
“The team has to rediscover the maximum compactness on the pitch and it has to enjoy the full support of its own fans, whose contribution is decisive to finding again the necessary confidence to overcome today’s difficulties.”
