On Tuesday, Juventus suffered a 3-0 defeat at home to Fiorentina and Andrea Pirlo admitted that his side did not concentrate on heading into the game.
Andrea Pirlo refused to blame Juan Cuadrado’s dismissal for Juventus’ heavy home loss to Fiorentina and instead questioned the attitude of his players heading into the match.
Juve suffered their first Serie A defeat under Pirlo in his 13th league match in charge, going down 3-0 in what was also their heaviest loss since moving to the Allianz Stadium in 2011.
“What happened with the red card cannot be used as an alibi,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
The outcome was not due to the behavior of Fiorentina but to our absence. You face bad circumstances like this when this is the case. In games before Christmas, it can happen when you have your mind on the holidays. We were unfocused and have not been able to recover.
It seems obvious to me that the photos for the sending off. There may have been some options in our favor, but that’s not something I want to comment on, you can see for yourself.”
