The Bosnia and Herzegovina player is back to the Allianz Stadium, as his country is set to play against Italy tomorrow.

Bosnia and Herzegovina footballer Miralem Pjanic will represent his country tomorrow night in the EURO 2020 Qualifiers.

He’s back at Allianz Stadium, where he normally plays with Juventus.

And ahead of the match, he spoke to the press about former manager Massimiliano Allegri’s successor, and what he expects from the match against the Azzurri.

“Juve is such a well-run club that the coaching situation doesn’t bother me,” he was quoted by Football Italia.

“I’m sure a great coach will arrive.”

“It will be a difficult game,” he said about the game between his country and hte Azzurri.

“Italy is favorites to win the group, but we want to win.”

He explained: “We want to forget the 2-0 loss in Finland.”

“It’s important that we give a better performance, we will have a lot of fans in the stadium and they will help motivate us.”

“It’s not often that Italy doesn’t qualify for a World Cup, they’re rebuilding now with a lot of young players,” he said.

“Roberto Mancini has them playing good football, but we’ll try to put them under pressure.”

“It won’t be easy to stop Marco Veratti and Jorginho, but we’ll work out a way to stop them playing,” Pjanic concluded.
