Pirlo sets San Siro testimonial

Andrea Pirlo will play his final match at San Siro on May 21 to raise money for charity. “It’s the chance to share a special evening doing what we love most.”

The former Brescia, Inter, Reggina, Milan, Juventus and New York City FC midfielder decided to hang up his boots at the end of 2017.

He’ll pull them on one last time at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in Milan for a charity event.

“It’s the chance to share a special evening doing what we love most,” said Pirlo when accepting an award in his hometown of Brescia.

“The game will be at San Siro, the venue for so many battles over the years, on May 21.”

Il Maestro was also asked about his future plans, having already been a guest pundit on Sky Sport Italia for several games.

“I only ever played football, so I think I’ll remain in this world. Becoming a Coach is a hypothesis, but I don’t know yet. I need to unwind for a while, then I’ll have time to decide what I want to do.

“I have no regrets, as it was the right moment to stop and I made the choice. I’m happy.”
