PIRLO SETTLES ON RONALDO/MORATA PARTNERSHIP

Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo is hoping that he won’t have to make much changes to his team as he hopes to kickstart the Italian champions’ title defence. The Old Lady has been inconsistent especially in the Italian Serie A since former player Andrea Pirlo was appointed the new manager. The Italian football legend became the Juventus manager in the summer after the previous manager Maurizio Sarri was sacked after one season.

Ahead of the visit of Cagliari to the Juventus Stadium on Saturday, Andrea Pirlo told reporters that he’s eager to settle on his preferred system and personnel. He hopes that the experimental days are over. Pirlo has had to deal with several injuries and positive Covid-19 results. Pirlo has hinted that he favours the partnership of Cristiano Ronaldo and Alvaro Morata.

Morata has been in good form since his loan move to Juventus from Atletico Madrid. He has returned to Juventus for his second spell having previously played for Juventus while on loan from Real Madrid. He has not played with Cristiano Ronaldo very well this season as the Portuguese player has had a disrupted season due to Covid-19 and injury.

Juventus are yet to win a game when Ronaldo and Morata start together but Pirlo has seen enough to favour their partnership as he hinted to JuventusTV. Ronaldo and Morata started together in the draws against AS Roma and Lazio. Last season, Paulo Dybala and Cristiano Ronaldo were a regular fixture in the Juventus attack but that has changed this season with Dybala being replaced by Morata. The trio of Dybala, Ronaldo and Morata are yet to play together in the league this season to suggest that Pirlo is not a fan of the three players lining up together.

Juventus face Cagliari in the next league game with the club in fifth position. The Italians are four points adrift of league leaders AC Milan.
