Krasic: "Dive was instinctive"

Posted on 27/10/2010


Milos Krasic said his dive against Bologna was “an instinctive gesture. I am not someone who does that sort of thing.”

The Juventus winger was handed a two-match ban after his dive to earn a penalty in Sunday’s 0-0 draw at the Dall’Ara.

He gave his version of events when handed the Tapiro d’Oro by satirical television show Striscia La Notizia.

“I am very sorry for all this, as I didn’t mean to do it and it was an instinctive gesture,” said Krasic.

“There has been so much noise about what happened and it was not necessary. I am not someone who does this sort of thing.”

Juventus have confirmed they will lodge an appeal against the ban.

If upheld, Krasic will miss games against Milan and Cesena.
