I won’t step aside – Pirlo

Andrea Pirlo claims that he will not stand down from his role as Juventus head coach.

Pirlo’s side got another major setback against AC Milan on Sunday but the Italian insists he won’t resign.

Rookie boss Pirlo watched from the sidelines as the Bianconeri were dismantled 3-0 at home by their rivals.

The heavy loss came just a week after Juventus had officially relinquished the Serie A crown.

This was the first time after nine successive titles.

Pirlo speaks after the game

Following their 3-0 loss against AC Milan, Pirlo said that he has no intentions of stepping aside from his role.

“Resign? No, I won’t step aside. I took this role with a great deal of enthusiasm amid certain difficulties.”

“Am at the disposal of the club, there are still three games to go, so I will continue doing my work as long as I am allowed to.”

“I had a different project in my mind and thought I would have a different group at my disposal.”

“Had been working on some concepts, but then I had to make changes in order to suit their characteristics and had to adapt.”

“It’s not that this team is resistant to change, but if you have some things in your mind and they become more difficult with certain players.”

“If I cannot get the best out of these players, that is my fault and I certainly need to do better.”

“If something didn’t go right, I take responsibility.”

“This squad is made up of great players, clearly something did not work,” he added.

Juventus are now in grave danger of missing out on the Champions League entirely next season.

With three matches of the season remaining, they are fifth in the league.

They are three points behind both Atalanta and Milan, as well as one back of Napoli.
