Pirlo: Time to give continuity to the results and performances

Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo talked to the media ahead of his team’s game against Ferencvaros. Here’s what he had to say.

“We need intensity. We have to continue the path of growth, if we do not give continuity to the performances and results, we are not a great team and we are not Juventus.”

“We have to approach in the best way, go on the pitch as if it is a final. it serves us as growth and to close qualification.”

On the performance against Cagliari

“The spark did not go off on Saturday.”

“We had also done well elsewhere. On Saturday we started well, with intensity, now the players fill the positions in a better way.”

“It takes time to assimilate, day after day we will try to improve.”

On absences

“4 remained behind, with the return of Alex Sandro. Danilo as central defender and Alex returning to the position of full-back.”

“Kulusevski has played a lot, I don’t think Chiesa is ready for the ninety minutes. We’ll see who gets to play.”

On Dybala

“He is ready, he is better, he trained continuously during the break apart from the first few days on antibiotics.”

“He moved better, he regained strength in his legs and we will see if he can be deployed from the start.”

On Ferencvaros

“We know the strength of this team, we don’t have to see the result, they put us in difficulty and they express good football.”

“I said it before, you don’t have to look at the result of the first leg, they are different matches, that was a match two weeks ago, tomorrow will be something else.”

“They have come from a good period, so do we.”

“We need maximum determination and concentration so we do not to jeopardize what we have done.”

Morata, Dybala and Ronaldo together?

“We have been thinking about the trident from the beginning, unfortunately we never had them in the best conditions.”

“Dybala injured, Morata was not there, Ronaldo with the covid..”

“They trained together for a few days. We have to give balance and structure to the team, then we will look for a path to make them work together.”

On Ronaldo

“We haven’t done any free-kick challenges for now. I behave with him as with Frabotta and all the others.”
