[Pjanic felt Juventus’ victory was merited even though they were hanging on at the end as Bologna threw caution to the wind in stoppage time] We knew it would be a complicated game, we have seen them play often. Bologna are in good shape, play well and are organised on the pitch. We deserved it. We had to score one more goal to secure the result but in the end they are three precious points, after the [international] break it is never easy. In the end they too got tired, because they had to run a lot. We are happy and move forward

[Miralem Pjanic admits Juventus are putting themselves in a bit of danger by failing to be more ruthless in front of goal] What I like about [Sarri’s] vision is the one, two-touch game, making the ball move more than us, because the ball always travels faster. Although, recently we’ve been seeing out matches with few goals compared to what we’re creating, and this puts us in a bit of danger and doesn’t give us all the satisfaction we could have for how we play. We have to be more clinical and take more chances. This will also make opponents have more respect and fear than us. Calm and clarity will come once we start to score more, and we’ll then keep doing so because this team has so much quality that we’ll be able to score goals from every angle. But we have to be more clinical

[Ronaldo was guilty of missing opportunities against Genoa but Pjanic was mostly relieved they got the win in the end, given Intermilan remain just a point behind them in the table] It happens to everyone, but luckily we won in the end and they’re three important points, given the results: Inter had won, Napoli lost points. It was important to keep up and move forward and to do so until March, which will be the most important month, and maybe see if we can stretch ahead a little

[Pjanic spoke glowingly of Allegri when the former Bianconeri boss departed at the end of last season but he has, unsurprisingly, been barely able to contain his delight at how Juve’s play – and his role within in it – has changed this term] Playing under Allegri was completely different, as we immediately looked to get the ball wide. Now, it’s different. My team-mates always look for me and I like that. It all depends on what the coach asks of me but I play more passes and now I want to touch the ball 150 times per game

[Sarri himself has acknowledged that his primary strikers – Ronaldo, Higuain and Paulo Dybala – have yet to find their shooting boots] We have a very low average of shots finding the net. In my view, it’s more of a mental issue than anything else. I expressed my fear with the players about that and we’ll try to prepare some training exercises to help, but we also need to be more determined in front of goal

[Barca-bound Miralem Pjanic pens heartfelt goodbye to Juventus] Breathe, Mire, this is the mantra I keep repeating in my mind during the decisive moments of a match. This is what I continue to repeat now, while I try to write down what I am feeling in this moment. I arrived four years ago so I could try to win everything. Because even when you don’t manage it, a Juventus player must always try. These were four intense years, experienced alongside great professionals, but above all real friends, with whom I shared victories and records, but also bitter defeats on the cusp of triumph. These are years in which I matured as a man and a father. This is the city where Edin grew up, becoming the biggest fan of this team, and where, with my family, we built the best memories of our lives

I don’t think I can ever thank you enough, so: Thank you to the Agnelli Family. Thank you to all those team-mates who shared this journey with me. Thank you to all the employees and members of the staff, who helped me to grow. Thank you to the fans who made me feel special every day. Because if there’s one thing I have learned, it’s that there is no minimum time in which you can fall in love. At the end of the day, it’s very simple: you wear this jersey like a second skin, you always give everything, and you’ll never go wrong. Now we don’t have much time to lose and there’s so much to win from here to the end of the season. Therefore, breathe, Mire. Because what today might seem so sad, from tomorrow will be a wonderful memory that you’ll keep in your heart for the rest of your life
