This Saturday, in the meeting against the Bolonia that finish with triumph agónico of the Juve in his own stadium (2-1), the young defender cut a centre with the hand inside the area of the 'bianconeri' in the discount, after a slip.

Surprisingly, the referee Massimiliano Irrati, after seeing thoroughly several repetitions with the VAR, did not signal maximum penalty for the visitors. This did not rid to the Dutch of the trial of the media, taking into account besides that, during the party, to the Dutch saved him in several occasions the veteran Leonardo Bonucci, his couple in the axis of the defence.
