Brescia defender Zebina upset over tension with Juventus fans

Brescia defender Jonathan Zebina is upset with the way he is treated by Juventus fans.

The Frenchman only left Juve last summer.

Zebina said: "The official reason [why they don't like me] is that I was always injured.

"But frankly I can't find anything that justifies so much hate. I have always behaved professionally, trying to play games like the one I did at San Siro for Brescia in which I showed that I am an integral players, even if many people try to suggest the opposite.

"The relegation to Serie B [after Calciopoli in 2006] was tough to deal with both from an emotional and a results point of view. The team was completely dismantled.

"That was a great team and if you look at the games no one can deny Juve's superiority.

"I could have gone to Real Madrid and to Milan. Carlo Ancelotti called me, but I wanted to get back to winning with Juventus.

"I didn't find strong support from a medical point of view. If you are injured [at Juve], you are injured forever. Alternatively, there is someone who hasn't done their job properly."
