Kulusevski delighted with first Juventus goal - and first of Pirlo era

Dejan Kulusevski was delighted to score for Juventus in their 3-1 defeat of Sampdoria.

The result marked a winning debut for Juve coach Andrea Pirlo, with the Swede scoring the first goal of the new era.

"It was a fantastic night. It wasn't that easy, but we got three points, won 3-0 and I am glad that I scored a goal in the first game, as it means I won't have to think about breaking my duck," Kulusevski told Sky Sport Italia.

“Andrea is very relaxed, he believes in his players and gives me a lot of faith, so it's easy to play for him. He lets me play and we can have fun."
