Birthday-boy Pjanic eager for renewal

Miralem Pjanic spoke after scoring on his birthday against Parma.

It’s a perfect day for you?
“It is, but above all, victory was important. It’s also my mother’s birthday so I dedicate it to her. It’s a beautiful day.”

How do you make up the 8 point gap from Juve?
“It’s not over, we are professionals, we want to fight until the end and gain the maximum number of points and then see what happens. The team is ambitious and we won’t give up.”

Your renewal…
“I definitely, I hope so. Let’s see, I do not know when. The coach knows that I’m focused on the team, the club knows that I’m committed to the fullest. We’ll talk — a contract isn’t something that’s done quickly. I am happy here, we’ll see.”
