Pirlo: Happy with the performance

Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo spoke to Sky Sports microphones after his team’s 1-0 defeat against Napoli.

“We conceded 0 shots on goal, we lost because of a dubious penalty. We created a lot of chances, but too bad for the result.”

“We made the ball spin very quickly, we created a lot of chances but only lacked putting the ball in the net.”

Dubious penalty?

“Yes, because otherwise there could be no contacts in the area, every contact would be a penalty.’

“I want to see if such an episode happened to us, there would have been much more trouble, controversy, I don’t know if this would have been given to us.”

“It happens that many episodes can be done differently against Juve, we are always on everyone’s lips.”

“These are heavy losses that are felt, now the top could be 10 points away.”

“We are happy with the performance, we must continue to play like this and move forward.”

The forwards?

“They played the game they were supposed to do, when you play so many games, it’s normal to lack some freshness.”

“They played an excellent game, those who entered and those who played from the start, only the goal was missing.”

Our offensive stats this season?

“We scored the goals we had to score, it’s not that the team that scores the most goals wins the championship.”

“The important thing is to create chances and play as a team, today we created the chances, but Napoli’s goalkeeper was the man of the match.”

Why didn’t McKennie start?

“You also need to know the conditions of the players, if I didn’t play it it’s because he had problems during the week, already against Inter.”

“Today it was already a lot to have him play 30 minutes of the game”

Champions League?

“If we perform like tonight but also finish our chances, we will win the games.”

Changes?

“I kept Kulusevski out because I didn’t have other strikers, it’s normal to rotate.”

Bernardeschi played the game he had to play, he sacrificed himself, he moved well, it’s a pity that he didn’t manage to shoot better in the first half.”

Dybala is an important player, we are waiting for him.”

Gattuso?

“I’m happy for him because he’s a friend of mine, but clearly I preferred to win and take home the three points.”
