Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic has had a go at the club’s critics, suggesting they do little themselves but speak a lot.

The Bianconeri have already secured the Scudetto this season- their eighth consecutive title but fell short in the UEFA Champions League and Coppa Italia, as they were knocked out by Ajax and Atalanta respectively.

Pjanic recently lambasted Juve’s critics in an interview on Tuttosport.

He said: “To say something against this Juventus is a lack of respect. There are many people who chat a little too much and do not understand much.”

About the knockout from the Champions League, he said: “Anything can happen in football, unfortunately, we left the competition. If we had faced the game with fewer absences, with fewer injuries, it would have been better.

“We lacked that bit of luck that would have been useful, that is, to have everyone available. it’s an excuse, but everything would have been simpler. We left, now we will have to analyze what has not gone and try to do our best next year “.
