Andrea Pirlo is 37 years old and he is still performing at a high level as he is a regular starter in the MLS club New York City FC.
Despite being at such an elevated age, the Italian midfielder continues proving his worth as he is one of the most influential figures in the club.
Throughout the majority of the extensive playing career of Andrea Pirlo, he has spent over 19 years performing in Italy with a number of different clubs including: Brescia, Internazionale, Reggina, Ac.Milan and Juventus.
After having spent so much time playing with Italian clubs, Pirlo was offered with the chance of performing in a completely different as he joined the MLS and even though it might come out as a daunting task for any player to join a distinct atmosphere, it has turned out to be a successful move and the veteran midfielder has expressed how things have been going for him ever since he joined the American league back in August of 2015.
“It was a new league for me, but above all I wanted to come to America. It represents a new and different experience for me in a country that fascinated me. I also got the opportunity to study a new language.
“Football is on the ascendancy here and I decided to come and play a part of it. I love the style of sport in America. Here you come to the stadium with your family and the victory comes second. What counts first and foremost is the sense of people coming together.” New York City’s Andrea Pirlo said.
It’s very likely that New York City FC is the last club where Andrea Pirlo competes at a high level and it’s good to see that the Italian midfielder is enjoying these last few years.
