Juventus lost to Milan in the derby of the 35th round of Serie A at Allianz, but also in one of the most important games of the season, the duel for the Champions League. This added fuel to the speculation of Andrea Pirlo’s sacking from the Bianconeri. Andrea Pirlo responded to the media on his resignation after the defeat to AC Milan in the Italian championship match.
Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo stated he will not resign after noticing his side slide down from the Champions League qualification places in Serie A after a 3-0 home defeat by AC Milan on Sunday, insisting he can do better.
For both clubs, this is a goal to which everything is subordinated, because Juventus, which lost the tenth title after nine Scudetto in a row, could be left without an LP, while Milan is close to the elite competition that has been waiting for seven years. Too long for a seven-time European title winner. Goal scorers for the guests were Brahim Diaz, Ante Rebić in the 78th minute, and Fikay Tomori in the 82nd minute.
Andrea Pirlo comments on resignation
Andrea Pirlo said to Sky Sport Italia, “I said yesterday that the team had a good week. We trained with the right attitude and concentration.”
“We were convinced that we could show a great game. But it didn’t turn out that way. We started the game well, but we lost our way and got this result. It’s hard to explain now. Many components did not work. When you lose such an important game 0-3, it means that a lot of things did not work. I need to analyze it, and then discuss it with the guys with a cool head.”
“Am I ready to retire or have I thought about it? No, I will not resign. I accepted the position with great enthusiasm, despite certain difficulties. There are still three games ahead, so I will continue to do my job as long as I am given the opportunity.”
