“His moment is not sweet. Not just with the goals he is not scoring,” he told BT Sport.

“He (Lukaku) is not linking well with the team, but he is our striker. We believe in him.

“In the other side there was huge quality. Sometimes people look for Ronaldo or Dybala but in a top team you have to look to [Giorgio] Chiellini and [Leonardo] Bonucci.

“I think Juventus is this type of team that when they are in front its very difficult.

“I think our attacking players, things were not coming. But everyone tried, everyone was strong mentally to try until the end.

“Juventus felt it and they ended the game with an extra central defender to add to the amazing Chiellini and Bonucci.

“It was a really difficult match for us. I thought we could take something but it was not possible.”
