Juventus coach Del Neri slams Fiorentina tactics

Juventus coach Gigi del Neri has blasted Fiorentina after their 1-1 draw.

Fiorentina took the lead after just four minutes thanks to a Marco Motta own goal, but late on Simone Pepe took the goalkeeper by surprise with his free kick.

"In the first half Fiorentina did well, finding a goal and then closing up effectively," he said of the 1-1 draw.

"Then we reacted and created many scoring opportunities, so I liked the performance. Boruc was Man of the Match and was about to win the game for Fiorentina single-handed."

The shot-stopper did perform a series of tough saves on Vincenzo Iaquinta and Giorgio Chiellini, but was arguably at fault for the equaliser.

"Considering the way we played, I think we dropped two points tonight. We conceded with the Viola's only shot on target and that was an own goal.

"Fiorentina did absolutely nothing to win this game. They defended diligently, though."
