Buffon emphatically denied this information in an interview broadcast on Tuesday on the official television of Juventus and stressed that the Turin team, leader of the Serie A with a point of advantage over Napoli, should maintain unity.

"It seems logical and necessary to disagree (with my teammates) and this is what has happened, but nobody, at least in the 17 years I've been in the club, has dared to accuse a teammate of a defeat or error. This, while I am the captain, will never happen, "he added. The goal of Juventus defined Benatia as a "very respectful guy" and stressed that the team 'bianconero' must maintain the maximum concentration to get ahead of his moment of difficulty in Serie A and win his seventh consecutive title.
"We have squandered five very important points of advantage (over Naples) in recent days, but we are still leaders, although with a minimum margin, we must defend it until the end, it is our goal and our duty," he said. "There are twenty days left in which we must jump into the countryside with ferocity and 'sport brutality' and in which we must be united, otherwise we will favor the games of our adversaries and those who, in our moments of difficulty, tried to create problems for us , never getting it, "he said.
