The former Schalke midfielder was again impressive for victory at Parma.
Pirlo said, ‚ÄúMcKennie is great at winning back the ball, but is also very strong when pushing forward. He is young and needs to work on his technique, but that will come.
‚ÄúAs we didn't have time for pre-season training or even friendlies, we were testing things out from the first game. As time wore on, we realised the positions of certain players had to change and we made some adjustments.
‚ÄúIt's a two-man midfield that can become three in transition."
