Andrea Pirlo slams Cristiano Ronaldo, others after Fiorentina defeat


Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo has blasted his players, including Cristiano Ronaldo for having the wrong attitude after their Serie A 3-0 defeat against Fiorentina on Tuesday.

Pirlo explained that his players were not focused and could not recover in time against Fiorentina, adding that the red card to Juan Cuadrado was not an excuse.

The Italian side were reduced to 10 men after only 18 minutes, after the sending off of Cuadrado.

Goals from Dusan Vlahovic, Alex Sandro (OG) and Martin Caceres ensured a defeat for Pirlo’s men at the Allianz Stadium.

“What happened with the red card cannot be used as an alibi,” Pirlo told Sky Sport Italia. “The result wasn’t down to Fiorentina’s attitude but the lack of ours.

“When this is the case, you face bad situations like this. In games before Christmas, it can happen when you’ve your mind on the holidays. We were unfocused and couldn’t recover.

“The images for the sending off seem clear to me. There could’ve been some decisions in our favour, but that is not something I want to comment on – you can see for yourself.”
