Italian Legend Andrea Pirlo To Retire At The End Of The Year

Andrea Pirlo will resign on December 31 when his contract with New York City FC ends.

Pirlo has been in and out of the team this season having suffered problems with his knees and muslces. Every day you have problems with your physical condition.

The 38-year-old enjoyed some of his best years under Conte at Serie A giants Juventus, where the pair enjoyed lots of success.

"At my age, that's enough". You don't have to carry on until you are 50.

In Cairo, an army helicopter dropped hundreds of Egyptian flags on thousands of fans gathered at the city's iconic Tahrir square. The euphoria was intense since Arnold Bouka-Moutou had stunned the hosts when equalising for Congo after 88 minutes.

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

Pirlo, who began his career with Brescia, won Serie A and the Champions League twice among a host of honours with Milan. "I'll do something else", he said.

There have been rumours that Pirlo would be interesting in working alongside Antonio Conte, and therefore moving to Chelsea.

Italy legend Andrea Pirlo has defended the Azzurri's poor form and rejected claims the state of football in his homeland is in poor health. "I'm not angry. Instead, I will give a hand to team-mates and to the coach", the 2006 FIFA World Cup victor and 2012 Euro runners-up added.

According to local authorities, in support of independence have voted more than 90% of voters, but the turnout was only 43%. In a sea of red-and-yellow Spanish and Catalan flags, protesters sent a clear message, shouting: "Catalonia is Spain".

"Now I'm concentrated and trying to finish well, as soon as I'm back in Italy I'll be studying to be a coach, because you never know". I have my ideas, but I will allow myself time to decide.

Palace have yet to win this season and are still searching for their first goal of the league campaign.

Then AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti saw Pirlo's ability to see a pass and shifted him to a new position of defensive midfielder.

It was also during his time with Milan that he helped inspire Italy to World Cup glory in 2006.
