Benitez says he has no idea why the Juventus players did not come out in support of Zlatan
Posted On July 25, 2021
Beniteza has said he has absolutely no idea who led the players in the first few minutes of the game against Sampdoria on Saturday.
The former Real Madrid manager said he was only aware of the players leaving the field after the first whistle.
“It was a big moment, but it’s not a big deal,” he told Radio Marche.
“There were a few people that came and spoke about it, but I haven’t seen anything, nothing.
I don’t know why they didn’t come out.
It’s not like we were talking about the players or anything.
It was a moment, a moment of silence.
But it was not something that was important.”
It is believed that the players did their own thing to show their solidarity.
They were seen walking out the tunnel with their backs to the pitch.
“We don’t want this to happen again,” Beniterez said.
The former Juventus boss has had to deal with an international break and has made no secret of his frustration with the team. “
I’m not really concerned about them, they were playing for their families, so we don’t really need their money.”
