Pirlo ‘could stay in USA’

Andrea Pirlo ‘isn’t ruling out the idea of staying in the USA’ as he likes ‘being able to go out to restaurants’.

The Italy international joined New York City FC from Juventus last summer and appears to relish not being in the spotlight as much in America.

“I always wanted to come here to play, but I never thought it would be so soon,” he said to the New York Times.

‘‘I don’t rule out the idea of staying here. That could be something interesting.

‘‘Just being able to go out to dinner at the trendiest restaurants — in Italy, I can’t do that.

“There were times we were kept in our dressing room until late at night because it wasn’t safe to go home. Our bus would get attacked, the tires slit.”
