Serie A free kicks in 15-year low

Only three free kicks have been scored in Serie A this season, but Andrea Pirlo insists the 15-year low is only ‘a bad run’.

Despite the League being littered with set-piece specialists, only Nicolo Barella, Cristiano Biraghi and Aleksandar Kolarov have found the target in the opening 10 weeks of 2018-19.

Not since 2003 have there been so few free kicks scored, and Pirlo was quizzed on why the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Lorenzo Insigne and Hakan Calhanoglu had yet to get off the mark.

Scholes: ‘Juventus made Pogba good’

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes believes Paul Pogba is struggling as “he's got nobody to control him like he had at Juventus”.

The Frenchman became the most expensive player in the world when he returned to Old Trafford in 2016, with the Bianconeri getting €105m plus €5m in bonuses for the player they’d signed for a development fee.

However, Pogba has failed to recreate the form he showed in Turin in the Premier League.

Andrea Pirlo has suggested that Juventus forward Paulo Dybala is not working hard enough. “If he trains with Cristiano Ronaldo’s desire…”

Dybala has played just 100 minutes out of a possible 270 for Juve this season, and Pirlo had some advice for the Argentine.

“Accepting that you’re not a starter at this stage of the season isn’t easy for anyone,” he added.

“Paulo will do everything to play as much as possible: if he trains with Ronaldo’s desire then it will be difficult to leave him out.
