Andrea Pirlo admitted that on Wednesday evening, Alvaro Morata’s miss for Juventus against Atalanta made him “very upset.”
After Morata’s back-heeled miss, Pirlo was seen kicking water bottles near to the Juventus bench, even though the former Atletico Madrid forward was possibly offside.
Before playing with Cristiano Ronaldo, Morata got a pass from Weston McKennie. The ball then came back to Morata, who sent an empty net back-heel wide.
After the final whistle, Pirlo was still frustrated. It made me furious, it’s something we can’t afford,” Football Italia’s comments post-game said.” “The game can be channeled in a certain way by these opportunities.”
“To make the right decision, one must have the lucidity and he didn’t. Apart from that, he played a fine game. It happens that often they don’t score.
The game finished 1-1. Before Remo Feulner equalized, Federico Chiesa put Juventus ahead in the first half. Minutes after the equalizer, Pierluigi Gollini then saved a Cristiano Ronaldo penalty.
In Serie A, Juventus is seventh, four points behind Milan’s league leaders. In the last 16 of the Champions League, The Old Lady was drawn to meet Portuguese side, Porto.
Born in Madrid, Morata started his career with Atletico before moving to the Getafe and Real Madrid youth systems.
Until representing Juventus and Chelsea, he then came through at Los Blancos with a second spell in between at the Santiago Bernabéu.
He rejoined Atletico on a Chelsea loan before agreeing on a permanent contract with Diego Simeone, then left Spain for another Juventus spell this summer.
