It was a difficult night as the Portuguese side shocked the Italians with an extra-time free kick concluding the game.
Juve Boss said he is not afraid of sack despite the fact that he watched his team crash out of the champions league on Tuesday night.
The match was about to end as a tie, not until Sergio Oliveira’s free kick from long range went under a shaken Juve wall, as Wojciech Szczesny was only able to aid the low drive into the back of the net.
I don’t know why [Maurizio] Sarri was removed,” Pirlo told Sky Italia after the game.
I am the coach of Juventus, I was brought in for a more ample approach, a project that was always meant to develop over several years, so I am not concerned [about being sacked].
I am not happy to be working with a full week, as I’d have preferred to stay in the Champions League.
Now that we’re in this situation, we can work on various aspects in training, which we haven’t had time to do so far this season, and try to improve on those.
Speaking about Oliveira’s free kick,
We choose the players to go in the wall. It had never happened before that they’d turn around, maybe they felt it was so far out that they didn’t sense the danger.
It was a mistake, it usually doesn’t happen, the players didn’t feel it was a dangerous situation and conceded a goal.
The struggles continues for Pirlo as his predecessor was sacked due to this similar issue.
