Former Juventus defender Andrea Barzagli has revealed that he ‘feels reborn’ since retiring as a player.
Barzagli hung up his boots at the end of last season, and the 38-year-old admitted he no longer felt able to keep performing to the best of his ability.
“I decided to retire because I felt I’d given everything I had to give,” he told L’Ultimo Uomo.
“Physically I was not as good as I was in the past, but it’s not just that. Above all, I’d reached a mental limit.
