Pirlo’s answer to the possibility of accompanying Conte at Chelsea
The Italian midfielder, Andrea Pirlo, did not dismiss the news that he plans to be part of the Chelsea coaching staff with Antonio Conte.
Pirlo will retire at the end of 2017 as the contract expires at his current club, New York City FC.
In the meantime, Pirlo plans to return to Italy in December 2017 after his retirement.
When asked about his possible reunion with Conte at Stamford Bridge, Pirlo said he needed time to vote.
“Assistant Conte? Many people say it, I have a shadow, but I need time to vote,” Pirlo told Sky Sports.com’s BolaSport.com.
Conte and Pirlo were together at Juventus and Italy in 2011-2015.
Pirlo has won six Italian league titles, five times with Juventus and once with AC Milan, two Champions League and one World Cup in 2006.
In the last three years, the 38-year-old footballer has played alongside New York City FC and has only 15 appearances from 32 matches in the summer of 2017-2018.
The former Brescia player’s decision to retire is based on the age factor that is now 38 years old.
