Italya s legendary midfielder Andrea Pirlo has stated that winning the UEFA Champions League title with Juventus this season will be a fitting farewell for him before he leaves the club. Andrea Pirlo has a contract with the Old Lady till the end of 2016. But as it has been reported, the midfielder who will turn 36 this month, could leave the club after this season ends.
Before the Champions League semi-final clash against Real Madrid, Andrea Pirlo said, a Ending my Juventus story by pocketing the Champions League would be a dream come true.
a But I won’t stop playing; I’ll go on as long as I have the same great desire to keep training every day.
a Winning this tournament would admittedly be the best way to close [my Juve career]. But I wouldn’t go to another Italian team.
a Juventus will be my last Serie A team, whatever happens. MLS could be an idea, but for the moment I don’t have anything, Juve are the only thing on my mind.
a Anyway let’s start by winning the Champions League, everything else comes later.a
Andrea Pirlo has had a successful stint with the Italian Serie A giants. Since joining the club in 2011, he has won the league title 4 times in a row and the Supercoppa Italiana twice. He has won the Champions League title before with AC Milan twice but according to him, winning it with Juventus before leaving the club is something he would cherish for a lifetime.
