Conte rubbishes Juventus crisis talk

Juventus coach Antonio Conte has shrugged off crisis talk after their draw at Champions League opponents FC Copenhagen.

Juve have also lost top place on the league table.

"It's only normal for people to talk about Juve in crisis, as we are Juve," shrugged the Coach during his Press conference.

"Last year more or less the same thing happened in this period when we drew Nordsjaelland and lost to Inter. We are accustomed to this at Juve, as there is always going to be pressure and we mustn't let it crush us, instead using it to bring something more out of ourselves.

"This is the exact same criticism we received last year, that Juve only do well in Italy, then we beat Chelsea 3-0 and suddenly the headlines suggested we could win the Champions League. We are in Italy, a country that lives on its excesses. Our job is to control these situations and stay calm."
