Andrea Pirlo described his squad as “young” and “naive” after they drew 1-1 on Saturday against newly promoted Crotone.
Pirlo believes players like Federico Chiesa, who signed during Fiorentina’s last transfer window, will need experience to mature after receiving a red card for a challenge against Luca Cigarini.
Pirlo claims the international hiatus prevented such growth in the squad, acknowledging the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo, Alex Sandro, Aaron Ramsey and Paulo Dybala played a role in their loss.

“Unfortunately we dropped to 10 men in the last two games because of our mistakes, but we are a young team that has to work and there wasn’t much time for that with so many international matches,” he told DAZN.
“Young players need to gain experience by playing in games, and they can make naive mistakes as part of the learning process.
‘We built a quality team, but it’s still a work in progress and will take time. The boys will learn from mistakes, but unfortunately that also means taking a few risks in the first few games of the season.

“We made a few mistakes with the timing of the press, but like I said, these things happen if we still have the machine oiled. We really only spent half an hour doing this tactical move in training yesterday, so it will improve. ‚
Also, Pirlo Cristiano Ronaldo and Weston McKennie were absent after the couple tested positive for coronavirus on Tuesday.
While Alex Sandro, Aaron Ramsey and Paulo Dybala were unavailable for the Juve boss, they continued to recover from an injury.
The absence of such players resulted in Pirlo focusing on the less experienced players to set them up.

However, the manager admitted that he had “very little time” to practice his new formation before playing with Crotone.
He said: “We had very little time to practice, we all had a first training session yesterday. We have players like Chiesa and Morata attacking space. So the idea was to find passes between the lines and that’s how the goal was created. ‚
Crotone boss Giovanni Stroppa was proud of his team’s performance, but claims his team should have taken advantage of Chiesa’s red card.
“We conceded a couple of goals with naive mistakes, but I still think we’re on the right track,” he said after the game.
“We could have made more of the extra man and been sharper in the last third than we did one-on-one, but we still did well with 11 against 11 and 11 against 10.
“This is not the best Juve team but we have seen that they still have remarkable talents to get off the bench and bring new elements to the side. We can therefore be proud of this result. “
