Call me ´Allegriano´ – Pirlo delight after shutting down Inter

Andrea Pirlo was happy to go back to the future to seal a place in the Coppa Italia final for Juventus at Inter’s expense.

Juventus played out a 0-0 draw in Tuesday’s semi-final second leg, meaning Cristiano Ronaldo’s double in the 2-1 win at San Siro last week proved decisive.

Pirlo has tried to bring in an expansive passing style at Juve this season with mixed results, but the sight of black and white shirts soaking up pressure with ease in front of Gianluigi Buffon evoked memories of the years under former bosses Massimiliano Allegri and Antonio Conte – the latter now cutting  a frustrated figure in the Inter dugout.

“It’s very nice,” Juve head coach Pirlo told Rai Sports of the comparison.
“If I have to win what he won, you can also call me ‘Allegriano’.

“We were very good, they almost never shot on goal.”
