Pirlo, who took over supervision of his former club Juventus this season in his first coaching mission in his career, returns to meet Lucescu, the 75-year-old who was the first to give the “Maestro” his professional start as a player 25 years ago in Brescia, when he was the playmaker at the age of sixteen. . He was also the Romanian behind Pirlo’s arrival to Inter Milan in 1998 when he was coach of the latter (1998 – 1999 season), which makes the Tuesday meeting in Kiev a confrontation between the student and the teacher.
Roman Lucescu talked about the abilities of the former star Pirlo, in his statements to the European Union (UEFA) website.
“Pirlo was amazing, mature,” Lucescu said. As mature as it is now. In addition to being a creative player, he was someone who would organize everything, which is another skill. This helped him a lot in becoming the way he is today, the coach of a great team like Juventus. ” In an interview with the newspaper “Tuttosport” published in Turin, the Romanian said that there is a “possibility” for Pirlo to follow in the footsteps of Josep Guardiola and French Zinedine Zidane, who shined during their careers with Barcelona and Real Madrid, before they led the last two to glory as coaches.
Andrea Pirlo, who recently took over Juventus after winning the Italian league title four times, drew plans for the team based on the presence of the Portuguese star Ronaldo, but now he will miss his efforts until the end of the health isolation period that Ronaldo is subjected to after being infected with the new Corona virus, as well as The new midfielder will miss Weston McKinney, for the same reason.
It was reported that Ronaldo is still not suffering from any symptoms, and he showed high spirits from his residence in Turin, which he returned to last Wednesday, one day after announcing his injury while he was with the Portuguese national team. Ronaldo also entered into an indirect confrontation through social media with Italian Sports Minister Vincenzo Spadafora, who had said that Ronaldo’s travel was a possible violation of the health rules followed during the Corona crisis. Ronaldo denied any wrongdoing, and expressed his hope that his tests would yield negative results in time to participate in the upcoming confrontation with Barcelona, Spain, next week in the Champions League.
Today’s match will depend heavily on organization and effective tactical ideas, at a time when Juventus is missing the efforts of Ronaldo, as well as the efforts of Mattis de Ligt and Alex Sandro. Paulo Dybala hopes to record his first participation in the season after an absence of two and a half months, and veteran defender Giorgio Chiellini is waiting for the return to present his experience to the team, whose basic formation included six players between the ages of 20 and 23 during the match that ended in a draw with Crotone 1 – 1 Saturday In the Italian League. Juventus are four points behind Serie A leaders Milan, but that did not disappoint Pirlo. “We are a young team that needs the worker,” Pirlo said. We need to gain experience … Until now, we had only limited time to train together, but we are a team with good potential. ”
