"Put Barcelona out of your mind" - Pirlo

Sat 12 December 2020 | 17:06

Andrea Pirlo informs Juventus to put Barca out of their minds and concentrate on Genoa, but also explains why gets mad at Juan Cuadrado.

The biggest threat the coach faces in this game is still with them on the wave of enthusiasm produced by the 3-0 Champions League victory at Camp Nou.

“If we do still Barcelona on our minds, then we have to change that right now, turn over a new leaf and create a sense of consistency,”

Pirlo

 

said.

“We can’t let that moment stop at one game and we’ve got to do better than over the last four Serie A matches. I want to see the same hunger and determination, otherwise we’ll run into an ugly surprise.”

Alvaro Morata is prepared after his two-match limitation for insulting the referee was halved on request.

“It’s going to be a difficult match against Genoa, who are very good at the defend and counter approach. They have quick and often physical players upfront, so we have to be very focused.

“I always liked playing at Marassi, it’s an English style stadium and I scored a goal here for Juventus.”

Juan Cuadrado has performed consistently so far this season.

“He’s a very important figure for us and has been for several years,

Pirlo

 

continued.

“He knows how to defend and attack, but at times I et cross with him because he does too many little tricks and flicks rather than remain in the game for every second.”
