Antonio Conte defends his decision to celebrate with his fans after his side's 2-0 win over Bologna on Saturday evening.

Antonio Conte has defended his decision to celebrate with the Juventus fans after his side beat Bologna 2-0 at Stadio Renato Dall'Ara on Saturday evening.

The coach was seen embracing the club's supporters after the victory with some suggesting that it showed a lack of respect towards Bologna.

However, Conte has said that the move was not motivated by any ill-feeling towards the home side.

"To be happy at winning another Scudetto is considered a lack of respect? I was just celebrating alongside my fans, while the gestures were spontaneous towards my daughter," Conte told reporters after the game.

"I know that it annoys many people when we win, but there was no lack of respect whatsoever. There are so many other horrible things elsewhere, like throwing rocks at team buses, so what's wrong if I want to celebrate with my fans.

"If I can't even celebrate with my fans after such an important victory, I don't know what you can do any more."

The win took Juve 12 point clear of Napoli in Serie A.
