Conte congratulates Siena

Antonio Conte lamented the fact Juventus failed to further the gap at the top of the Serie A ladder but praised Siena for their efforts in ensuring their contest finished level.

Juve were continually frustrated in Sunday’s 0-0 draw at the Juventus Stadium as they failed to capitalise on Milan’s scoreless draw with Napoli.

“I can only congratulate Siena on how they approached this game. We gave our all but it wasn’t enough. We weren’t able to keep to a high tempo and find space to attack,” Conte noted afterwards to journalists.

“It’s certainly a shame because having seen the other results it was a good situation to capitalise on and we weren’t able to do so. We’ll continue to take things on a game by game basis - just as we’ve done since the start of the season.”

As Juventus pressed late on there was controversy when Simone Vergassola appeared to handle Giorgio Chiellini’s cross inside the penalty area.

“Vergassola’s handball? I think that the images speak for themselves and, as I’ve done on previous occasions, I’d prefer not to say anything.”
