Shakhtar coach Lucescu: Henrik Mkhitaryan had Pirlo in his pocket

Shakhtar Donetsk coach Mircea Lucescu was delighted with their work against Juventus veteran Andrea Pirlo last night.

Lucescu felt they deserved more from their 1-1 draw at Champions League opponents Juventus.

He was delighted with the performance of his midfield: "Henrik Mkhitaryan is tactically very gifted and he kept Andrea Pirlo back. We proved that we are a team of a high level."
