Pirlo: 'Not happy with my performance'

Andrea Pirlo admits “I am the first to say I’m not satisfied with my performance” after Juventus lost 2-0 to Bayern Munich.

“Compliments to Bayern for showing their strength tonight, but there is also a second leg and we will prepare for that,” the midfielder told Sky Sport Italia.

“When you prepare for such an important game and you go behind after 30 seconds, it certainly influences your approach.

“However, throughout the 90 minutes Bayern showed their superiority. We hope to control the game in the second leg.”

The Bianconeri gave the ball away numerous times in the Champions League quarter-final, particularly with Pirlo in the final third.

“I am the first to say I’m not satisfied with my performance, as I made many mistakes in such an important match and it’s disappointing. We now have to analyse why we had so many misplaced passes.

“Clearly we need something more in the second leg, as what we did tonight was not enough.”
