Juventus defender Fabio Cannavaro says he regrets the jeers being sent his way by the club's Ultras.

Juventus defender Fabio Cannavaro says he regrets the jeers being sent his way by the club's Ultras.

Cannavaro said: “I am very sorry. A footballer never likes to be protested against. I understand the bitterness, but we have explained the motivations that brought me to that choice.

“On my part there wasn't the desire to show a lack of respect to anyone. It's clear to everyone that I am here to work, to give my best and to win something.

“I was the first person to be sorry to leave this club. I came here after having spoken with the club. We did not even spoken about figures with Alessio Secco. It already suited me like this. I was happy to return,” Cannavaro explained.

“We are speaking about Juve. It wasn't a certain regret. In that difficult moment for the club I was clear with them and they were clear with me.

“We found the best solution for me. I went abroad and they made a good sale. Now we look to the future because we have to look to the future.”
