Pirlo: I’m tired more than the players

Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo spoke to DAZN microphones after his team’s 3-1 win against Lazio.

“We got off to a bad start due to our mistake, but then we played an excellent match despite the absences.”

“The best thing was the team reaction, we didn’t get beaten and we raised the pace.”

“The most important thing was the 3 points, I had the availability of everyone: Danilo to play in midfield, Bernardeschi as a full-back, everyone was fantastic.”

“Federico deserves all the compliments, we were standing together in such a delicate match.”

Morata?

“Due to physical and other problems we have not had him in the last period, but now he is finding his best shape.”

“We bought him this summer for his characteristics, which make him different from all the others forwards.”

“We hope to have him at 100%, he can still give much more.”

Kulusevski?

“He is reacting like a champion, if you are a 20 years old player in Juventus, you have a lot of pressure, it’s not the same as playing in Parma.”

“Here every game is different and every step is important, he is proving to be a great champion, he is becoming one in the head before the feet, and this will all work in his favor.”

Arthur?

“He is the only one with certain characteristics, he makes us play well, he is always lucid even under pressure, when he is in possession he gives you great rhythm, with him you always find a positive situation, he makes the players turn around him and he is always in the right position.”

“We hope he can find the conditions to have him at the latest on Tuesday.”

Porto?

“Today we didn’t think about it.”

“Cuadrado came from only one taining session, Arthur himself only had just half an hour yesterday.*

“We had prepared for tonight’s game, which for us was like a final.”

“Even and especially those who played in a position that was not their gritted their teeth and showed self-denial and professionalism.”

“Fortunately we have two days to prepare it and now I have to rest too, I’m more tired than the players.”

“It will be fundamental for the rest of the season, it is valid for such an important goal that we cannot go wrong!”
