Although he is a legend in world football, Andrea Pirlo has never played in the Premier League, although he had the opportunity to move to Chelsea but was ultimately rejected.
Sharing on the Daily Mail in 2019, quoted by talkSPORT about not being able to move to the Premier League, Italian football legend Andrea Pirlo said: “I had the opportunity to reunite with coach Carlo Anceltti at Chelsea. and maybe Manchester City in 2009 but in the end, I went to Juventus.
Then, Chelsea called me too old. In fact, in 2009, I was only 30 years old, so after a period of consideration, I decided to join Juventus.”
At Juventus, Andrea Pirlo had a sublime time playing and contributed to helping “Old Lady” dominate the domestic arena. Looking back on his career, the legendary Italian team also won the Champions League twice with AC Milan under coach Carlo Ancelotti and was crowned once at the 2006 World Cup.
