Pirlo rates himself six out of ten after Juventus thrash Genoa
Juventus head coach Andrea Pirlo has rated his season’s performance at 6/10, claims he has to do more.
Pirlo has been under pressure recently, but after the Napoli’s win relieved him he feels he can earn a 6/10 score. Juventus eased past Genoa 3-1 to keep up the Serie A pace after all the top six teams won.
Speaking after the match, Pirlo rated his first season in charge of Juventus, added his football idea is to dominate.
“All coaches must feel like they have to prove themselves every single day, let alone me, as I am in my first coaching experience. Football has been my dream since I was a child and I will keep working hard to improve,” Pirlo said.
“I’d give myself a six out of 10 for this season so far. I know that I must do more, and when you don’t achieve certain results, the coach is the first to take responsibility.”
“My idea of football is to dominate the game and press the opposition. For a series of reasons, we’ve been unable to fully implement it. But the team is eager and we’ll keep working on it,” Pirlo added.
Pirlo has also insisted that Cristiano Ronaldo will not be fined after the veteran forward threw his shirt after the whistle. He explained that it is normal for a champion; he said he wanted to score.
“It’s normal he wanted to score a goal, especially when the game was getting complicated. As he is a champion and always wants to make his mark,” Pirlo defended the Portuguese.
“I don’t think so. He was upset as it happens to other players too. The game was over and it’s normal he was nervous. I don’t think the club or the coach will fine him,” he added.
However, reports claim that Ronaldo had promised his jersey to a ballboy, but coach Andrea Pirlo had a different perspective.
