“I deeply regret what has happened, especially because these are young players who are of great value to our football. Seeing these young people involved in this type of situation is truly unpleasant,” expressed Pirlo. “Today, I spoke to my players about this matter. I sincerely hope that we don’t have any more cases. It is crucial that we all stay alert. Our players have the best jobs in the world, and it is pointless to waste that privilege with such harmful situations.
