Italian midfielder Andrea Pirlo has brought the curtains down on a chequered playing career after announcing his retirement from professional football.

Pirlo’s last professional football appearance was with MLS outfit New York City FC, in the second leg of their playoff tie against Columbus Crew. NYCFC won 2-0, but Columbus advanced 4-3 on aggregate.

Pirlo played for both Milan clubs and Juventus, and has also had brief stints with Reggina (loan) and Brescia. He is best remembered for his time as a Milan player, but he also enjoyed great success with Juventus. Between 2010 and 2015, he won five successive Italian league trophies.

The likes of Paul Pogba and Carlo Ancelotti paid rich tributes to him after the news of his retirement broke.

Pirlo’s retirement now means that only five active members remain from the Italian squad that won the 2006 World Cup- Gigi Buffon, Daniele de Rossi, Andrea Barzagli, Alberto Gilardino and Cristian Zaccardo.
