A rare Gigi Buffon error allowed Bertolacci to level affairs with just six minutes remaining, but the manager refuses to dwell on the situation and is already looking ahead to the games against Cagliari and Atalanta.
“That’s football. Many of these incidents have been seen in the past and today it happened to us. It was something inconceivable. Gigi made an error just like we made many further forward.
“He’s having a fantastic championship and has saved us on many occasions. What happened will help us to develop even more and make us understand that nothing can be taken for granted.
“We’ve squandered a bonus, but we’ll look ahead knowing that it’s still in our hands. Before the championship began we would have been delighted to be leading by a point, unbeaten and with a Coppa Italia final to play as we go into the penultimate game.”
