Milan, Juventus and Italy Legend, Pirlo retires from football

Former Milan, Juventus and Italy playmaker Andrea Pirlo has called time on his illustrious career, after his last game for Major League Soccer side, New York City.

Pirlo, who began his career at Brescia, was capped 116 times by Italy, including as part of the team that won the 2006 World Cup.

The 38-year-old confirmed this much via his social media account.

“Last match in MLS, as my time in NYFC comes to an end,” Pirlo said in a statement. “Not only my adventure in New York comes to an end but my journey as a football player as well,” the Italian legend added.

Not also was Pirlo successful with his country, but also won many domestic titles at club level, including two Champions League, two Serie A titles, and a club world cup with Italian giants, AC Milan.

He was also part of that Juventus side that won four consecutive Serie A titles between 2012 and 2015.
