Catania coach Diego Simeone was delighted with their fight-back against Juventus.

Simeone saw his team comeback from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Juve.

“In the first half we did well up until Alessandro Del Piero’s goal. After the break we reacted and showed great character when 2-0 down,” said the Coach.

“The result was earned on the pitch and I don’t think he got anything that we did not deserve tonight.

“My lads showed grit and determination to fight back, never letting go. The little teams are all playing well at the moment and anyone who gives up goes into Serie B.”

Former Inter star Simeone celebrated in a Jose Mourinho style, running along the touchline when Francesco Lodi curled in with the last kick of the game.

“I celebrated like that because we had a difficult week and did not deserve to lose this evening."
