Juventus

climbed into the top four on the final day of the Serie A season to qualify for the Champions League after they beat

Bologna

4-1 and other results went in their favor.

Pirlo's side moved one point above

Napoli

into fourth place as Gennaro Gattuso's team were held to a 1-1 draw with mid-table

Hellas Verona

.

“For me, it was important to finish the job, winning the Coppa Italia and qualifying for the Champions League, which was a very important target,”

Pirlo told DAZN

.

“I’ve always put in the total commitment, and this is the result. Those who must decide [about my future] will do it.

“I see myself on the Juve bench next season, I would confirm myself, but now we must enjoy what we have achieved.”

Cristiano Ronaldo

was left on the bench for the second time this season. Pirlo explained the decision to leave the Portuguese on the bench was mutual and because of the fatigue accumulated in recent games.

“It was a shared decision, Ronaldo was tired after Wednesday’s game, so I decided to start Morata, another great player. Ronaldo was available, I have a deep squad, and I can pick many different players.”
