Juventus coach Antonio Conte defended his celebrations after victory over Bologna.

Conte was seen pumping his fist, calling the crowd and blowing kisses into the television cameras while play was still going.

“If I can’t even say anything to our fans and celebrate with them, then tell me what I can do?” said Conte.

“We annoy people when we win, I’m sorry, but I did not lack respect towards anyone. We see so many horrible things, people who throw rocks at team buses or swearing, so what’s the problem if I want to celebrate with my fans?

“I won, I am winning another Scudetto and that is meant to be a lack of respect? The kiss towards the camera was a spontaneous gesture aimed towards my daughter.”
