Pjanic: 'Juve dropped two points'

Miralem Pjanic assures there was no row with Max Allegri, but Juventus consider their draw with Inter to be “two dropped points.”

The midfielder seemed unhappy as he left the field in the final minutes to make way for Rodrigo Bentancur, seeming to turn and shout something to his Coach.

“No, nothing happened, I just wanted to get off the field quickly to ensure the substitution was completed, as time was running out to win the game,” Pjanic told Mediaset Premium.

“The disappointment of the team in the locker room was evident, as we were the stronger side on the field and didn’t take our chances.

“Inter are a good side, tough, have quality and I know Luciano Spalletti’s work well. It’s a pity, as we were superior on the night and could’ve done more to win.

“Now we have to keep looking forward and pick up more points. I see this as two dropped points, as Inter never really had scoring opportunities. They are having an extraordinary season and if the top teams keep this tempo, then the Scudetto won’t be decided until the end.

“Juventus have always respected our opponents, but we end this game fully aware that we should’ve won and the ball just wouldn’t go in. We want to continue dominating in Serie A, we want this seventh straight Scudetto and will give our all.”

The Champions League draw is on Monday and the Bosnian hopes he won’t be up against the current Premier League leaders.

“To be honest, whoever you pick, it’s going to be tough. I always respect Pep Guardiola’s sides, as they play beautiful and effective football, so I guess I’d rather avoid Manchester City.”
