Pirlo: Icardi lost more, Juve...

Andrea Pirlo claims Mauro Icardi has lost more than Inter and that everything suggests it could be Juventus’ year in the Champions League.

Napoli, Inter and Milan occupy the three spots below Juventus in Serie A with only 10 rounds of fixtures left, and Pirlo expects the top four to stay as it is.

“The same three today, even though Lazio are doing well right now,” explained the former Italy midfielder to Gazzetta dello Sport.

Pirlo: Balotelli, look at Kean

Andrea Pirlo has advised ex-Italy teammate Mario Balotelli to take a leaf out of Moise Kean’s book. “He hasn’t wasted the confidence placed in him…”

Pirlo retired from football in 2017, ending his career in MLS with New York City FC, and the former Juventus midfielder admits he does not miss playing.

“I’m very well, I don’t miss having to train every day and I missed being able to stay with my family more,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

Andrea Pirlo, Gennaro Gattuso, Massimo Oddo and Massimo Ambrosini took advantage of their Liverpool visit to recreate an iconic Beatles image.

Pirlo's still got it for Milan

Andrea Pirlo and Giuseppe Pancaro were on target for Milan Glorie in a 3-2 defeat to Liverpool Legends at Anfield.

The charity event was packed with star names, including Coach Carlo Ancelotti, who set his Rossoneri out with the classic Christmas Tree formation.

Marcos Cafu looked much like his old self bursting down the right flank on to Manuel Rui Costa passes, but Luis Garcia missed a sitter on a rapid counter-attack.

Billy Costacurta lost sight of Robbie Fowler and allowed him to meet Glen Johnson’s cross one-on-one with Dida.

Maldini: 'Milan dominated Liverpool'

Paolo Maldini still can’t believe Milan lost the 2005 Champions League Final to Liverpool. “We dominated for 110 minutes out of 120,” but got their revenge in 2007.

The 2005 Final in Istanbul remains a nightmare for Rossoneri supporters, as their team somehow went from dominating 3-0 to 3-3 in the space of six minutes, eventually losing in a penalty shoot-out.

Juve midfield not Champions quality

Once the cornerstone of Juventus strength, the midfield has now become their main flaw in pursuit of the Champions League, argues Ramez Nathan.

Juve's path back to greatness began with Antonio Conte seven years ago. The Italian tactician had just arrived after leading Siena to promotion and was about to start the most challenging journey with the Old Lady.

We all know the story, they'd been back in Serie A for five campaigns failing to achieve any silverware and their former captain guided them to three successive Scudetti, including an unbeaten run in their first title.

'Tonali the new De Rossi, not Pirlo'

Brescia boss Eugenio Corini claims Italy starlet Sandro Tonali will be ‘the new Daniele De Rossi’ and not another Andrea Pirlo.

Tonali had been likened to Pirlo in playing style, stature, appearance and the fact he also started his career at Brescia, but Corini believes the 18-year-old will turn out to be more like the Roma captain.

“He’ll be the new De Rossi, a team player,” the former Palermo and Chievo man told Gazzetta dello Sport.
