Andrea Pirlo had been “thinking about retirement for a while” and thanked the New York City FC fans for “treating me like a star when I wasn’t.”
‘Il Maestro’ hung up his boots this week with his final Major League Soccer match.
“I feel positive, as I’d been thinking about my retirement for a while, so it wasn’t a spur of the moment decision. I’d pondered it and I feel good now,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
