Italy legend Andrea Pirlo announces retirement

One of football's most technically gifted midfielders, Andrea Pirlo, will call time on his career in December with the Italian set to retire when his New York City FC contract expires. Known for his curling free kicks and pin-point passing skills, Pirlo hung his boots after persistent knee problems proved to be a deterrent in his everyday training schedule.

"Every day you have physical problems, you can not train as you like because you always have some stuff". "At my age, that's enough, you can't go on forever, I will do something else". You do not have to continue like this until you are 50 years old, no.

The 38-year-old revealed the value of Conte's attention to detail, highlighting the effectiveness of the Chelsea bosses tactical video sessions.

Andrea Pirlo started his professional career in 1995 with Italian side Brescia as an attacking midfielder but his beginnings were quite underwhelming. I will do something else.

Joe Flacco has struggled to get the passing game going and will have another hard time staying upright in the pocket this week. EJ Manuel got the start, while Connor Cook will serve as the backup. "I'll wait to fully commit", Weddle said.

"Just because you were a good player doesn't automatically mean you can do it", he said.

Pirlo has been linked with a coaching role at Chelsea under Antonio Conte, the manager with whom he won three of his six Serie A titles during their time together at Juventus.

Italy legend Andrea Pirlo does not believe that football in his home nation is in a bad state ahead of the Azzurri's impending World Cup playoff campaign. "I'm not angry. Instead, I will give a hand to team-mates and to the coach". I have my ideas, but I will allow myself time to decide. Milan won the league after he joined but Dalla Bona struggled to break into a team that included the likes of Pirlo, Clarence Seedorf, Rui Costa, Alberto Ambrosini and Gennaro Gattuso.
