Arthur talks about Pirlo
I think I've changed a lot from the start of the season to now, I feel like a player with more quality. With more experience and I have to thank coach Pirlo for all this. He has always trusted me. He's always said things to my face as it should be.
Pirlo is always very direct with me: "Arthur, I want you to do this, I don't want you to do this...". And I think the problems at the beginning of the season were there because more was expected of me.
In my opinion, Pirlo helped me to grow. I think today I make more passes between the lines, I'm more offensive and I've also grown defensively. I just have to thank him and I really enjoy working with him.
I'm lucky because I'm at a great club, with outstanding professionals, and there's also my personal team working together. They all did their best to get me back playing as soon as possible. I'm much better now. Obviously, I have to keep a close eye on it.
It's too early to take stock of the season, the championship is still open. If we win the league or if we win the Coppa Italia, since we're in the final, it could be a positive season. But the biggest goal we had was the Champions League.
We just have to look ahead and try to win all the remaining games, because all is not lost yet.
