Galatasaray midfielder Melo slams Italian media

Galatasaray midfielder Felipe Melo was thrilled with their Champions League win over Juventus.

The former Juve man took aim at the Italian media for writing Gala off.

"I am happy because we won an important game. I have the utmost respect for Juventus, they are a great team, but I am happy only because Galatasaray won.

"We were fired up for this game and expected a great Juve, but also a great Galatasaray. We knew anything could happen and we deserved to win, as we played very well. Yesterday was impossible to play, while today we had to fight the ball.

"In football you never know and the Italian media should've had more respect for Galatasaray. The Corriere dello Sport wrote after the draw that Galatasaray and Copenhagen were two 'sweeteners' for Juventus, but they were proved wrong."
