Pirlo: ‘The players attending the party are not called up’

Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo confirmed the three players attending the party at Weston McKennie’s house are not called up for the match against Torino.

The Bianconeri have already denied more players other than McKennie, Paulo Dybala and Arthur Melo attended a party organised by the American midfielder.

The police broke up a party on Wednesday night, as it’s forbidden to hold private parties in Italy under the current COVID protocol and Italy has a nationwide curfew in place, from 10pm to 5am.

Pirlo drew a line under the incident by not calling up any of the players for the Derby della Mole against Torino on Saturday.

“The three players involved are not called up for the match tomorrow,” Pirlo said at a press conference.

“They will resume working with time and then we’ll see when. I made the decision and the club did the rest.

“For the technical part, I decided. These things have always happened, but this is not the time for what is going on in the world.

“It was not the right time to do it, we are examples and must behave like it.”
