Juventus coach Pirlo: Kulusevski fighting like a champion

Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo insists he's happy with Dejan Kulusevski after their defeat of Lazio.

Kulusevski made some errors and is still not quite delivering the standards expected.

“He is reacting as a champion," argued Pirlo.

"It's natural when coming to Juventus aged 20 that there's more pressure and every pass seems important. He is proving himself to be a champion in his mentality even quicker than he proves it on the field, so I expect great things."
