Pirlo: Juve right for me

Juventus talisman Andrea Pirlo believes the Old Lady are the right club with which to continue his career.

The 34-year-old revealed he has recently been offered chances to move abroad but turned them down to remain in Turin.

“In recent years I have assessed chances to have an experience abroad, but in the end I’m fine here,” Pirlo told Sky Sport.

“I think this is the best place for me to continue playing football.

“It’s Conte’s third year but the hunger to win is always the same. The formation and style of play has changed but our substance has remained the same.

“We have gained experiences and knowledge, things that have helped us to get the results we have.

“I always play to win, I always have big targets in mind.

“We are out of the Champions League but now we need to concentrate on the Europa League.

“The more targets you have, the greater the will to win."

The veteran midfielder then commented on his side’s opponents on Sunday, Napoli, and the renewal of Italy Coach Cesare Prandelli’s contract.

“We know where we want to get to,” he said. “Napoli are a great team, the 20 point difference between the teams will count for nothing on the pitch.

“In the reverse fixture with Napoli we played very well. It was a huge game but we went out onto the pitch to win, like we always do.

“Prandelli’s renewal? We are happy, he has done very well and it was right to give his project continuity.”
