Juventus' midfield Obi-Wan Andrea Pirlo made a remark you all may be interested in to Gazzetta dello Sport ahead of the home opener of their Champions League semifinal with Real Madrid on Tuesday. The gist:
Ending my Juventus story by pocketing the Champions League would be a dream come true. But I won’t stop playing, I’ll go on as long as I have the same great desire to keep training every day.
Winning this tournament would admittedly be the best way to close [my Juve career]. But I wouldn’t go to another Italian team.
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.
Anyway let’s start by winning the Champions League, everything else comes later.
Ladies and gentleman, start your imaginations...
