Krasic amazed by Pirlo craft

Milos Krasic has quickly been impressed by new Juventus teammate Andrea Pirlo this summer.

The Italian international has joined the Old Lady after his contract at Milan expired in June.

"Andrea is a phenomenon," the Serbian winger told the club's website. "He's won many honours and he's a great person.

"To find this kind of quality in one player is fantastic and it's nice to be able to play alongside him," the midfielder added.

"It's the first time that I have been in the same team as someone with his characteristics.

"I've never seen anyone like him, he's able to pass the ball to teammates' feet in every play."

Krasic was signed last summer from CSKA Moscow for €15m, but new boss Antonio Conte is set to use him differently from previous tactician Gigi Del Neri.

"Each Coach has his own features, but I think that this year we'll have more drive," he continued.

"I'll be an attacker rather than a midfielder, this is the main difference, and it's ideally suited for me. I love to go forward individually and with the whole team."
