Mirko Vucinic says his decision to whip off his shorts when celebrating a goal against Pescara was “spontaneous.”
The Juventus striker converted a penalty in the 2-1 Serie A victory today and celebrated by whirling his shorts above his head.
“It was spontaneous. I felt like it and I did it,” he declared.
Coach Antonio Conte was not best pleased at the yellow card he picked up and tried to slap him on the back of the head.
“It was an affectionate slap!” laughed Vucinic.
However, this wasn’t the first time he stripped down to his underpants to celebrate a goal, as Vucinic also did it for Roma and Montenegro.
“The important thing is that we won and achieved three important points, so everyone is happy. Now we hope to win against Bayern Munich too.”
