Giorgio Chiellini believes the Bianconeri need to eradicate the recent lapses of concentration that have been creeping into their performances if they are to hold any hopes of claiming a third successive Scudetto title.
The defender’s third goal in tonight’s 3-2 win over Milan appeared to have put Juventus on course for a comfortable final 15 minutes, only for Sulley Muntari’s second of the night to set nerves jangling in a tense finale.
Speaking to reporters at Juventus Stadium, the 29-year-old reflected: “We made life difficult for ourselves again, and risked allowing Milan to snatch a draw. If that had happened we wouldn’t have slept for a week.
“A change in attitude is required if we want to win again this year. I can understand the first goal, but not the second, the game was over. I hope it serves as a lesson for the future. As far as the rest is concerned, I can only be happy, I scored and we won. Mexes’ punch? That’s not football.”
