I won’t resign, says Juventus coach Pirlo


Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo says he is not thinking about resigning after his side slipped out of the Uefa Champions League qualification places in Serie A following a 3-0 home defeat by AC Milan on Sunday evening.

Pirlo insisted that he can do better as Juventus have stuttered in recent matches.

The loss to Milan left Pirlo’s outfit fifth in the standings with three games to go, as doubts linger over the rookie’s managerial capabilities.

“Step aside? No,” Pirlo told Sky Sport Italia.

“I have undertaken this job with a lot of enthusiasm, there are difficulties but my work goes on and I am available.

“I think I can do better and be able to get out of it, together with the team. We have to look forward, I will continue to do my job as long as I am allowed.

“We had actually started fairly well in the match, but we lost our way and this was the final result. It’s difficult to explain now. There were many components that didn’t work.”
