Matri: 'I'd like Pirlo at Milan'

Alessandro Matri faces his old Juventus teammates tomorrow and would gladly “bring Andrea Pirlo back to Milan.”

The striker has already said he would celebrate if he scored at the Juventus Stadium on Sunday night. Click here for a match preview.

“I have no desire for revenge, as I only want to do well for Milan,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“Who would I like to take away from the Juve squad? Purely out of friendship, I’d love to bring Pirlo back to Milan. Of course, as a player everyone knows how good he is.

“In terms of rapport and his skills, I think Pirlo would fit in well here with us.”

Of course Pirlo spent 10 years at Milan before he was allowed to leave at the expiry of his contract in 2011.

Juventus picked him up on a free transfer and the creative midfielder proved to be one of the inspirations behind two consecutive Scudetto triumphs.
