  • Andrea Pirlo's greatest highlights from his trophy-laden Juventus career

Pirlo, who on Sunday announced his impending retirement once his New York City FC contract expires at the end of the year, is confident that results will soon improve. Known for his curling free kicks and pin-point passing skills, Pirlo hung his boots after persistent knee problems proved to be a deterrent in his everyday training schedule.

"You have physical problems every day, you can't train as you would like to because you always have something".

Prior to his reign at Stamford Bridge, Conte enjoyed three trophy laden years at Juventus with Pirlo one of his most trusted players.

"At my age, you have to say that's enough".

"At 38 it is right to give young players the space to develop, I'm not angry, instead I will look to help my teammates and the coach". You do not have to continue like this until you are 50 years old, no.

The former Italy worldwide has enjoyed an illustrious career which has included six Serie A titles, two Champions League crowns and lifting the World Cup with Italy in 2006.

Long day: Western beats Buffalo in septuple OT
Jarvion Franklin's 12-yard touchdown run gave Western Michigan the victory in the Mid-American Conference game at Buffalo . Seconds later, his sister joined the team on the sideline to celebrate - even though the game hadn't ended.

The 37-year-old made the revelation, amid suggestions Pirlo may link up with former Juventus boss Antonio Conte's backroom staff at Chelsea, while discussing what he misses about playing in Europe. "I'll do something else", he said.

He was also part of Italy's triumphant 2006 World Cup squad.

"I hope AC Milan won't sack Montella", Pirlo said.

"I have some ideas, but I will give myself some time in order to decide".

The veteran midfielder left a lasting impression on the reigning Serie A champions - winning the Coppa Italia and Italian Super Cup twice, as well as reaching the 2015 Champions League final.
