Juventus coach Claudio Ranieri has shrugged off the local media campaign against him after their 1-1 draw with AC Milan.

AC Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf opened the scoring thanks to a lucky ricochet, but Vincenzo Iaquinta equalised three minutes later.

Ranieri said: “It depends on who is criticising me. A Coach is accustomed to being criticised and has to accept it.

“I know that I have done my work well. There is some genuine criticism that can help you improve and that needs to be listened to. I welcome constructive criticism.

“All I can do is push to get as many points as possible and fight to finish second, which we proved tonight.

“Good luck only arrives if you earn it and we equalised because we were so determined to get points here tonight and I'm very happy with this performance.”
