Juventus coach Pirlo urges calm after slow season start

Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo urged calm after their 1-1 draw with Crotone.

AC Milan are now top of the table after their victory over Inter Milan.

Pirlo said, “We knew there would be a lot of teams fighting for the Scudetto who invested heavily.

"It'll be a battle, we will fight it out point by point. We've dropped a few already, but I am confident we'll end up on top again."

He added: “We built a team with quality, but it is still a work in progress and needs time. The lads will learn through mistakes, unfortunately that also means taking a few risks in the early matches of the season."
