Crotone coach Zenga: Buffon? I'd have done worse!

Crotone coach Walter Zenga says Juventus captain Gigi Buffon will always have his support.

Ahead of tonight's clash, Zenga was asked about Buffon's meltdown at Real Madrid last week.

"I am always pro Buffon, beyond the football faith," said the former Inter Milan keeper.

"You cannot criticise a person because he reacts and defends his fort ... Anyone at that moment would have reacted like that in a match like that and secondly against a club like that. I would have done even worse, certainly."

Zenga added: "Juventus will come to Crotone six points ahead of Napoli and will try to close the game in the first half hour. We will have to be good at fighting them.

"We will fight to play our game."
