Milan, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 19th Sep, 2020 ) :Andrea Pirlo said Saturday that Barcelona striker Luis Suarez's move to Juventus was unlikely to go ahead because of delays in the Uruguayan's bid to get an Italian passport.
"Suarez? It is difficult given the time factor, it is complicated for him to be the Juve centre forward," Pirlo told a press conference before Juventus open their campaign against Sampdoria on Sunday.
Juve cannot recruit him because they have already reached their quota for non-EU players.
Juve start with Cristiano Ronaldo and Dejan Kulusevski up front in a 4-4-2 lineup against Claudio Ranieri's Sampdoria.
Pirlo warned he had "no doubts, but many certainties" before his debut season which he hopes will reap a 10th consecutive league title.
"There are those who speak well of me and those who have their doubts but nothing changes for me. I am sure of what I'm doing." Pirlo was appointed after Maurizio Sarri was sacked after just one season, after the team's Champions League last 16 exit.
"I'm not here to show differences from the past year," he said.
"I have my ideas, which in certain situations are also similar to Sarri's, even if they are two different cultures.
"I carry on with my idea of football, aggressive, with mastery of the game.
