Legrottaglie: 'Pride at stake with City'

Nicola Legrottaglie assures Juventus will “honour the shirt” against Manchester City despite being out of the Europa League.

The Bianconeri have already been eliminated and Roberto Mancini's side qualified regardless of the result tomorrow evening in Turin.

“I have been at Juventus for many years, so I know there is no such thing as a friendly,” said Legrottaglie.

“Nobody wants to be embarrassed and we all want to honour the shirt. On top of that, this is an important opportunity for those of us who haven't had the chance to play much so far. We can give the Coach some tough decisions to make.

“I am very eager to step on to the field, give my all and do the club proud.”

Juventus are eliminated in the group phase despite not losing a Europa League game.

Including the preliminary round, the Bianconeri are unbeaten in nine matches.
