Moggi slams Juventus critics: You're allowed a bad game

Former Juventus GM Luciano Moggi has hit out at critics after his old team's defeat to AC Milan.

Moggi is adamant the 4-2 loss was only a blip.

“After hearing all the critics, I read the newspapers and said: 'Show me the table'," Moggi told Radio Bianconera. “I thought we had been surpassed but I saw that we are first, so maybe someone is wrong in their reviews.

“If Juventus are first, it means that they have done what they need to do. Unfortunately, a big game happens."

Moggi claims the Bianconeri were too relaxed after having seen Lazio lose 2-1 to Lecce earlier in the day.

“Juve relaxed after the Lecce result, then found a gap with [Adrien] Rabiot, then [Cristiano] Ronaldo cleverly increased the lead to 2-0 and Juventus acquired the peace that you can't have in football.

“Last night, the problem wasn't in defence but in attack. When [Paulo] Dybala is there, they are superior in numbers. Yesterday, that was missing.

“In front of us were a livelier opponent, we must also accept defeats."
