Hidden number Pirlo in Serie A 2020-2021 (Part 2)

Pirlo is assertive in terms of personnel. Immediately after taking office, he told Higuain that the player has no place in the first team.

After a 5-0 win over Novara, Pirlo also appeared on Sky Sports with a clear statement to the club’s transfer bosses: “I need one more striker, ASAP.”

Juventus has contacted Luis Suarez , and is turning to Edin Dzeko. With Milik almost certainly leaving Napoli for Roma, the possibility of Dzeko coming to Juventus is increasing, while the Suarez case is a bit complicated, even though the player has just taken the exam for Italian citizenship. Because the summer transfer window is about a month away, Pirlo can own Dzeko when Serie A kicks in the second round.

What the fans are waiting for in Pirlo is not only a beautiful style, a new style of football, but above all, victories. Juventus have won just two of the last eight games last season in Serie A. All season, the team under Sarri lost seven games and conceded 43 goals – Juventus’s worst statistic in the era of dominating Italy’s number one league.

Juventus opponents have also been strengthened. Antonio Conte welcomes Achraf Hakimi’s biggest signing since July. Aleksandar Kolarov is another addition to the three-defender system. Conte is waiting for Arturo Vidal and N’golo Kante to increase midfield fighting power. Inter actively did not buy Sandro Tonali to turn to experienced players. All for the sake of toppling Juve right this season.

Lazio, Atalanta, and Milan are also potential champions. Before the social gap, Lazio lost only one point to Juve. The form of Ciro Immobile will determine the competitiveness of this team. Atalanta also led Juve 2-1 away, before receiving a penalty and being equalized. Papu Gomez’s refusal to move to Al-Nassr kept the Atalanta forces safe. They had no regrettable loss, other than letting Timothy Castagne go to Leicester. It is also impossible to ignore Napoli, after they bought Victor Osimhen with the highest price in club history.

Meanwhile, Milan won 30 points in 12 matches after Serie A returned from translation. The presence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic makes them formidable opponents. The appearance of Tonali (20 years old), makes Milan the most young midfield. With Franck Kessi (23) and Ismael Bennacer (22), they are not bored with any opponent.

Hidden number Pirlo in Serie A 2020-2021 (Part 1)

Cristiano Ronaldo is no longer the focus when Juventus marches to Serie A today, because his coach, Andrea Pirlo, will have his first professional military match.

Pirlo leading Juventus is like a schoolboy and starts the new school year. When students in Italy returned to school on Monday, Pirlo also recently completed his UEFA Pro degree course. At Coverciano , he successfully defended his graduate thesis, titled “My Football”. It will soon be kept in the library of the Center , and is considered the birthplace of Pirlo’s professional military career.

The appointment of Pirlo as coach has remained a controversial decision for Juventus. Just nine days after announcing he was U23 manager, Juventus unexpectedly promoted Pirlo as first-team manager, after sacking Maurizio Sarri for his Champions League defeat.

Pirlo is compared to Zinedine Zidane, and Juventus is expecting the appearance of a “new Zidane” in Italy. But at least, the original Zidane spent two years leading Real Madrid B before taking over the first team. On the contrary, Pirlo never held a table before signing a two-year contract with Juventus, and the friendly match with Novara was his first time directing.

The beard, which was once a highlight of Pirlo on the 11-man football field, will now become a highlight on the piste road. Pirlo spoke from an active football perspective, based on a predictable ability to control the ball inspired by Pep Guardiola. But how the specific game is deployed is still curious, in a Juventus too many personality stars. Recently, Sarri up Corriere della Sera described Juventus as a “untrained” team.

Pirlo used two systems of three and four defenders alternately in a 5-0 win over Novara. It is an implication for flexible thinking of this military rulers. 11 names in the main lineup are still unknown, but surely Juve’s force is not weaker. The departures of Miralem Pjanic, Blaise Matuidi and Gonzalo Higuain were quickly filled by Arthur, Weston McKennie, and Dejan Kulusevski. Experts in Italy are waiting to see how Pirlo will exploit Kulusevski, after the player made a strong impression at Parma last season. Statistics show that the Swedish midfielder’s third-most active range in Serie A last season – a sign that he can provide much help playing behind Ronaldo.
