Pjanic expects 'great' Coach

Miralem Pjanic says he is expecting Juventus to appoint a ‘great’ Coach, while Bosnia-Herzegovina must target Italy’s midfield on Tuesday.

Juve have yet to name Max Allegri’s successor, almost a month on from announcing his exit, but Pjanic is relaxed about the situation.

“Juve are such a well-run club that the coaching situation doesn’t bother me. I’m sure a great Coach will arrive,” he said at a Press conference.

Bosnia take on Italy in a Euro 2020 qualifier at the home of the Old Lady tomorrow evening, boosted by the return of the midfielder.

“It will be a difficult game. Italy are favourites to win the group, but we want to win,” he explained.

“We want to forget the 2-0 loss in Finland. It's important that we give a better performance, we will have a lot of fans in the stadium and they will help motivate us.

“It’s not often that Italy don’t qualify for a World Cup, they’re rebuilding now with a lot of young players.

“Roberto Mancini has them playing good football, but we’ll try to put them under pressure.

“It won’t be easy to stop Marco Veratti and Jorginho, but we’ll work out a way to stop them playing.”
