Pirlo confident that Juventus will have a successful future
Italian midfield maestro and legend Andrea Pirlo believes Juventus will keep on winning titles for years to come. The Italian currently plays in America with New York City FC. Pirlo has also shown sympathy towards PSG following it’s shocking defeat by the hands of Barcelona having faced similar defeats during his time at Milan by Liverpool and Deportivo La Coruna.
As quoted by Football Italia, Pirlo stated,
“I really miss games like Juventus-Milan. Also Champions League games, they’re beautiful to play at any age. But I made a choice in July 2015 and I’ve never regretted it. As the years go by, you have to know when the moment comes to do something else. It’s better to leave while you’re still good, before others show you the door. Juventus will continue to win for many years, they’re the club best-equipped to do it.
Juventus are in great form this season with the new signings of Gonzalo Higuain, Miralem Pjanic, Dani Alves and Marko Pjaca flourishing under Massimiliano Allegri. The Bianchoneri are set to win a 6th Seria A title in a row beating their own record of 5 that was set way back in the 1930s. Pirlo was also sympathetic toward PSG after a 6-1 thrashing by the hands of the Blaugrana who came back from a 4-0 deficit in the first leg to win the fixture on 6-5 aggregate. Pirlo said:
I’m an expert. I was immediately reminded of Deportivo La Coruna with Milan, we won 4-1 in San Siro but then we lost 4-0 over there. A tremendous hit. But then I think back to that final in Istanbul in 2005. 3-0 in the first half and then Liverpool overturned it. It was a terrible blow. That said, the comeback PSG suffered was perhaps even heavier. Istanbul has stayed inside me, I’m sure that when PSG play in the Champions League they won’t feel the same security. It’s hard to forget what happened. It’s hard, I assure you.
The Italian legend is set to return to Juventus after he retires as an ambassador. The Italian has complete faith in the Bianconeri and he will be delighted to be a part of the club in it’s future endeavours.
