Paul Pogba said Andrea Pirlo “has a golden foot” and Juventus took revenge on Fiorentina in the Europa League.
The French midfielder spoke to Sky Sport Italia after a 1-0 victory at the Stadio Franchi sent the Bianconeri through 2-1 on aggregate.
“Before the game we had decided to play our style of football, then the goal comes later. We played better in the second half and Pirlo’s goal gave us the win.
“We are happy, as we still remember the 4-2 defeat to Fiorentina here in October.”
The tie was decided by a Pirlo free kick, just days after he did the same for a 1-0 Serie A win away to Genoa.
“I have to work hard in order to learn from Pirlo, as he has a golden foot. To copy his technique I’d need to train for many years.”
