Pirlo, in his biography, recounted the legendary jokes he made to ‘Ringhio’ in the rallies, who recalled them like this: “I slapped him more than his father“Getting serious again, the coach believes that talking about Juve in crisis is” a trap “:” I don’t believe it and I hope my players don’t either. They never lose two games in a row. He will have casualties, but his squad is incredible. They must not smell our blood. ”

Gattuso confirmed that Mertens “is not 100%, but may help“and returning to the controversies over the game postponed in October, he stated:” There was our good faith, we respect the rules. The health authorities stopped us when we were already on the bus and there is great respect for Juve. Everything else is useless talk“.
