But the joy with which he received the commemorative jacket of the feat from the Juventine president, Andrea Agnelli, it was smoldering as the ball rolled.

Benevento, who for the second time in their history are playing in Serie A and fighting to avoid relegation, choked on the reigning champion. Filippo Inzaghi He won the battle of the benches against his former teammate Andrea Pirlo.

For Pirlo, the defeat and the 10 points disadvantage with 11 games to play do not change the mission of Juve. “We must continue to believe in the title and do our job. Our goal has not changed“” Our mentality must change, we are wearing a very important shirt that must be honored, “he added.” Today we had an obligation to play better and instead we had a bad day in terms of attitude and some technical situations. ” .
Among them that of Arthur in the goal. “He made an unusual mistake in him, it was strange because he did not see the rival,” the coach tried to explain. “It would have been easier to go back to the goalkeeper, a horizontal pass around the edge of the large area is dangerous. It was a mistake for lack of attention, and we have committed too many like that.”
