Tudor insists no mixed emotions after Juventus shock: It's my Verona!

Hellas Verona coach Igor Tudor says they deserved their 2-1 win against Juventus.

Giovanni Simeone struck twice for the shock victory.

“It's not my Juventus, it's my Verona! I had some good years there, but this is a battle now and we always try to win," Tudor told DAZN.

“It was a deserved victory, the lads gave their all and after going 2-0 up, I feel we could've pushed harder to maybe add a third. We started to sit too deep in the second half, Juve raised the tempo and created some danger, but we defended the three points tooth and nail.

“I said in previous matches that the mentality changed after going 2-0 up and I didn't like that. I've seen it happen too many times now. You cannot just stop trying to score goals, but on this occasion, Juve's quality forced us back in the second half.

“Defensively, we improved compared to previous matches, we doubled up more, had everyone fighting for the ball and that pleased me."
