Juventus playmaker Pirlo admits struggling with Catania man-marking

Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo admits he struggled with Catania's tactics for their 1-1 draw on the weekend.

Catania man-marked Pirlo during the game, and the Italian admitted it affected his performance.

He said, "I didn't have a great game today, I was marked tightly and therefore I looked to move to provide more space for my teammates.

"I fit in very well with the manager's way of playing, also because I've always got many ideas of where to play the ball, be it out wide or forward."
