Juventus shocked by Napoli snub for Super Cup ceremony

Juventus players were shocked by Napoli's snub of the Super Cup winning ceremony yesterday.

Claudio Marchisio criticised Napoli for refusing to attend after they lost 4-2 in extra time, so only Juventus went to receive their medals and lift the silverware.

“Everyone is free to do what they want, but just as Italy stayed to watch Spain receive their reward after the Euro 2012 Final and Juventus watched Napoli lift the Coppa Italia, it would’ve been fair for Napoli to stay on the field too,” said Marchisio.

“Their protests? If there had been a few more bookings in the first half to penalise nasty tackles, then perhaps we wouldn’t have seen the red cards after the break.”
