Andrea Pirlo, Juventus manager refuses to resign
Juventus slipped out of the Champions League qualification spot after a 3-0 loss to AC Milan last night.
“Step to the side? No.”
“I have attempted this work with a ton of eagerness, there are troubles yet my work goes on and I am free,” Pirlo said in his interview after the match.
“I think I can do better and be able to get out of it, together with the team. We have to look forward, I will continue to do my job as long as I am allowed.
“We had actually started fairly well in the match, but we lost our way and this was the final result. It’s difficult to explain now. There were many components that didn’t work.”
Last week Inter Milan won Serie A, thereby ending Juventus’s 9-year league winning streak.
Surprisingly Antonio Conte, who was the manager of Juventus when this winning streak started, was the one to end it with his current Inter Milan side.
Moreover, questions have started to arise over Cristiano Ronaldo’s inability to perform at the level at which he was expected to perform this season.
Media reports suggest that he will be sold at the end of the season.
