Juventus coach Pirlo wary of facing Inzaghi's Benevento: He's proving himself

Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo is wary of facing Pippo Inzaghi's Benevento today.

The two coaches are former teammates and Pirlo has been following Benevento's progress closely this season.

He said, “I haven't spoken to Pippo lately, but I always follow his progress with affection. He did so well to win the Serie B title last year and is proving himself to be an excellent coach.

“It's an important game and comes just before a break for international duty, so it's possible minds will wander towards what's happening next week.

“However, this is a fundamental match for our campaign, we are up against a team in a good period of form, I know their coach well and he'll come here trying to get a result."
