Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo spoke to Rai Sport microphones after his team’s 4-0 win against Spal.
“We are extra happy for the result, for having put so many young players on the field.”
“It’s not easy to play at this level, especially at Juventus, so we’re very happy with how they did.”
Facing Inter in the semi-finals?
“The last match is forgotten and is part of the past.”
“It will be a semi-final of the Italian Cup, we will face it with the desire to go to the final.”
Another clean sheet?
“Not having conceded a goal is important, it gives awareness of the work done, and it is always a pleasure especially in this period when you play every three days and may lack clarity.”
“We were lucky enough to get back the three players who had Covid-19, with them we will have the full squad apart from some absences.”
“Having Gigi is a pleasure, it’s a pleasure to see him train every day.”
“He still looks like a kid, when one has this energy he still has to go on.”
“I didn’t think he would have a career this long, he had serious aches in his back, but he had great strength and clarity, he worket a lot on his body.”
“He will still have space because he is proving to be still among the best in the world.”
“He was great on a technical and physical level. With great prospects, we will try to make him grow as best as possible.”
Giving more playing time to youngsters?
“It depends on what happens in the future, it is not easy.”
“As in the past, Frabotta has played important games, Dragusin has played in the league. If there is space and need, we will look at them.”
