Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo had a different version of the story and he confirmed that the former Real Madrid striker was angry that he couldn't score. “It’s normal he wanted to score a goal, especially when the game was getting complicated, as he is a champion and always wants to make his mark," he said in the post-match presser. After the win, Juventus continues to stand on number three of the points table with 62 points.
