Pirlo: The Super Cup win motivates us

Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo spoke in the usual press conference, ahead of his team’s game against Bologna.

Winning the Super Cup?

“It left great enthusiasm, winning helps to win even more, and therefore there was great euphoria after the game and great enthusiasm in these days despite the fatigue.”

“We recovered, we trained with great desire having our goals in mind. We are ready for tomorrow’s game.”

Juve still inconsistent?

“In terms of continuity, we didn’t have since the start of the season, but all the teams have had ups and downs, drops in concentration.”

“Most games no longer finish 1-0 or 0-0, but almost all of them with many goals, due to the many matches, the lack of preparation.”

“This season started immediately after the final of last season, so there is mental fatigue and it is not easy to stay focused every 3 days.”

“This is the situation we are living, not only in Italy, so we know we have to improve.”

Physical situation?

Chiellini had some back pain already in the warm-up with Napoli, but he gritted his teeth and played the 90 minutes.”

“He comes from a long period of inactivity, for him to play close matches is not easy.”

Chiesa is better, Frabotta too.”

Demiral trained with the group and is available.”

McKennie is important for dynamism and strength, he has some incredible insertion too, he knows how to play between the lines, he is giving us a lot.”

Kulusevski can play from the beginning.”

“He has had two excellent games, he is having a great season with Juve, which is not easy.”

“Despite not playing for a while, he entered with great spirit, he’s intelligent, ambitious and is of great quality.”

Kulu as a forward? “It can be one of the solutions, it can be his role.”

“He is young and he is able to cover many positions on the field.”

“Playing as second striker he is a bit freer to move, with less defensive tasks and therefore maybe he feels even lighter in that position.”

Dragusin? “He is ready, maybe he will play in the cup, but for tomorrow I will pick between Chiellini and Demiral.”

“I’m satisfied with the squad available, I have strong players and I don’t need anything.”

“We are calm about who’s available, we’ve had many out due to injury or covid.”


“When you enter the field with the attitude of the other night, the slightest smudges turn on your side.”

“With this desire, determination, concentration, these things also bring you positive results.”
