first_imgJuventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic assured Juventus is full of respect for tomorrow’s Serie A opponents, Fiorentina.The Bianconeri travel to Florence this weekend, for what is sure to be a hostile atmosphere at Stadio Artemio Franchi, where they will face one of their most bitter rivals.”It’s a difficult place to go, so we’ll have to play a good game,” Pjanic said in the build-up to the highly anticipated clash. “It’s a game in which we want to take all three points. We know we’ll have to fight to the end, and it’ll be a game which comes down to the details.”We have a lot of respect for these opponents, so we need to be humble, but above, all we want to take home three points.Juve Coach Massimiliano Allegri complained that his side keep dropping in intensity, after coming close to throwing away the win against Atalanta in the Coppa Italia.concentration”We just have to keep our concentration. It shouldn’t be happening, we need to close out games earlier,” said the tactician. “We’re going forward, we’re working well and we’re getting results but there are some details which we need to correct.”Up until now the team has always been able to correct what we’ve been doing wrong and we want to do that in the coming games.”Pjanic, who has scored seven goals and created nine assists since joining Juventus from AS Roma in the summer, also spoke about his link-up play, particularly with striker Paulo Dybala and his general contribution.”The objective is always to find ourselves between the lines,” Pjanic explained.”Then we have the freedom to combine with each other and switch positions upfront. We find each other on the pitch very often, and it’s easy and a pleasure to play with him in the side.”We have so many good players and we respect that the coach tries to put the best team out on the pitch.”And as I’ve said, I make space for Dybala and he makes space for me. We combine, and now we understand each other’s movements well.”last_img
