He is naive- Pirlo responds to Chiesa’s debut red card
Federico Chiesa joined Juventus on loan from Fiorentina just before the closing of the summer transfer window. The 22-year- old winger marked his debut for Juventus in their Saturday clash against Cotrone. He sat up Alvaro Morata for Juve’s first goal of the game but in a challenge with Luca Cigarini he got red card and got sent off the pitch by the referee. It is Juve’s second red card of the season with the first one being Adrien Rabiot’s dismissal in the 2-2 draw against Roma. Andrea Pirlo Juventus manager has talked about his young team and the lack of experience within the squad.
"Unfortunately, we went down to 10 men in the last two games because of our errors, but we are a young team that needs to work and there hasn't been much time for that with so many internationals," he told DAZN.
"Young players need to gain experience by playing in matches and it can happen that they make naive errors as part of the learning process.
"We built a team with quality, but it is still a work in progress and needs time. The lads will learn through mistakes, unfortunately that also means taking a few risks in the early matches of the season.
"We made a few mistakes in the timing of the press, but as I said, these things happen when we're still getting the machine oiled. We only really spent half-an-hour on this tactical movement in training yesterday, so it will improve."
