Vucinic rejects ´lazy´ accusations

Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic has hit out at the selective vision of the Italian media for questioning his work rate.

The Montenegro international has come in for criticism of late from some sections of the national press, who have questioned his level of effort for the Bianconeri.

However, the former Roma forward has refuted the claims and suggested his detractors view the statistics of Juventus’ recent defeat to Bayern Munich to gain a little more insight into his commitment.

“We run like crazy at Juventus, but these people do not see it. They told me that I lacked commitment, but if we look at the statistics from the Bayern game you will see that is not true,” he told reporters.

“I accept criticism, but I cannot accept it when it is not true.”

The Old Lady moved a step closer to recording back-to-back Scudetto titles with a 2-0 victory over Lazio in Rome on Monday, prompting Vucinic to praise his team-mates for putting their Champions League disappointment to one side.

“Today we saw a great Juventus performance,” he added. “Despite being eliminated from the Champions League, we came to Rome with the right mentality.

“The Scudetto? No, we have not won it until it is mathematically assured.”

Antonio Conte’s men can potentially move to within a point of retaining their league title in the event they beat AC Milan in Turin and Cagliari beat second-placed Napoli.
