Juventus coach Antonio Conte hit out at the circumstances of their Champions League elimination after defeat to Galatasaray.

Juve lost 1-0 in a game that was played out over two days due to snow and hail.

"We are talking about a game played on a mudslide. There’s no ‘also’ when it comes to discussing the turf. It was everything. What made me angry was yesterday the referee suspended play because it was ‘dangerous’ and all of a sudden today it was no longer ‘dangerous.’ Maybe I need to improve my English, as the officials don’t seem to understand me very well.

“The only way of playing today was to kick it upfield and hope for the best. That is really not the sort of football we are accustomed to and it showed.”
