Juventus coach Pirlo hails Arthur performance: We're playing him in preferred position

Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo hailed the performance of Arthur Melo for victory over Bologna on Sunday.

Arthur struck in the 2-0 win, producing a performance as good as any he's shown in a Bianconeri shirt.

Pirlo said, "We talk and he prefers to play in a more advanced position, leaving more defensive tasks to another midfielder.

"He does it very well, every time we start to build the game he is ready, in the right place.

"He has vision, manages the ball very well and gives us correct moments to get out of the pressure of the opponent."
