Italian midfielder Andrea Pirlo announced that he would be retiring from football at the end of the Major League Soccer (MLS) season.
Currently at New York City FC, who are managed by Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira, Pirlo has confirmed that he is already thinking about what he’ll be doing once he hangs up his boots.
“My future, I don’t know yet. I will return to Italy in December,” the 38-year-old told Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sky Sports).
Winning six Serie A titles, two champions league trophies and a World Cup, Pirlo is one of the most decorated players of the modern era.
A four-year spell in Turin was to follow after 13 years calling the San Siro home, Pirlo continuing to perform with Juventus despite being in the twilight stages of his career.
Now, at New York City, Pirlo is ready to call time on his playing days and take the next step in his career.
