Conte shoulders blame in Juventus draw

Antonio Conte praised the "great response" from his side after Juventus fought back to beat AC Milan 2-1 in the Coppa Italia quarterfinal.

Mirko Vucinic struck the winner in extra time after Sebastian Giovinco had levelled the match following Stephan El Shaarawy's early opener, and Conte was delighted that his charges were able to learn from their mistakes in their recent defeat to Sampdoria.

“It is always a tough game between these two great teams and clubs who have won so much,” he told RAI after the match.

“Our hunger was huge and I received a great response from everyone, especially as I included many players who hadn’t featured for a while.

“I told them that what happened against Sampdoria must never happen again."

The 43-year-old reserved special praise for Marco Storari, who made a handful of impressive saves on the night as he deputized for Gianluigi Buffon.

“I compliment Marco Storari, as he played a great game in goal and I am very proud of him.”
