Pirlo was seen to kick water bottles close to the Juventus bench after Morata’s back-heeled miss even though the former Atletico Madrid forward was probably offside.
Pirlo was still unhappy after the final whistle. “It made me angry, it’s something we cannot afford,” he said post-game in comments carried by Football Italia. “These opportunities can channel the game in a certain way.”
“One must have the lucidity to make the right choice and he didn’t. Aside from that he made a great game. It happens not to score sometimes.”
He then came through at Los Blancos before representing Juventus and Chelsea, with a second spell at the Santiago Bernabéu in between.
He rejoined Atletico on loan from Chelsea before signing for Diego Simeone’s side in a permanent deal, but this summer left Spain for another spell with Juventus.
