Juventus manager, Andrea Pirlo has come out to say that Alvaro Morata’s clear miss vs Atalanta pissed him off.
He recently revealed that even if the miss was annoying, the forward still had a great game.
According to him, Juventus cannot afford needless misses at this stage of the season because glaring scoring opportunities go a long way in decideing matches in the Serie A nowadays.
He added that Juventus played an excellent match vs a decent Atalanta team that is always difficult to face.
“Ronaldo’s miss was a pity because it would have helped us to go ahead, but these things can happen.
“Morata’s miss made me very angry, it’s something we cannot afford. These opportunities can channel the game in a certain way. One must have the lucidity to make the right choice and he didn’t. Aside from that he played a great game. It happens that goals are not scored sometimes.”
“We played an excellent match against a strong team, with great pace,”
“However, we would have won if we had shown more conviction. We created a lot, but we have not been able to close it out and when we leave the game in the balance, anything can happen – but we took the field with the right attitude. It was an important game in terms of intensity. Atalanta is difficult to face and we did it well.”
