“We wanted to put in a good performance and we did that tonight”
Medhi Benatia was a key component of the Juventus defence that kept a clean sheet in the visit to Milan on Sunday evening. His handball did lead to the penalty that was squandered by Gonzalo Higuain in the first half but the defender barely put a foot wrong during the match.
“I’m glad about the performance and the win,” he said after the game.
“It was nice to be part of such a prestigious fixture. Yesterday I was getting a massage with Cristiano [Ronaldo] and [Daniele] Rugani and I saw it being said on TV that I often mess up in big games, so I wanted to show that I can be relied upon.
“It was important for us to bounce back after the Manchester United match. We wanted to put in a good performance and we did that tonight. Playing against Higuain, a good friend of mine, was an added incentive.”
