ANDREA PIRLO believes Juventus are on a par with Milan and says he won’t forget the last 10 years.
One of Milan’s biggest symbols in the last decade has switched from Red & Black to White & Black after 10 years in which he won everything possible with the shirt of Milan, including 2 Champions League titles.
Pirlo has moved to Juventus, who are building a whole new side which is believed to compete for the Scudetto next season but Andrea says he won’t forget his time with il Diavolo so quickly.
“I spent a decade with Milan, that cannot be forgotten easily,” Pirlo, who was presented this week by Juventus and wore their away, pink shirt, told their official site. “Galliani said that he expected to see me with the black and white shirt at the presentation of the new strips? It was a joke, but I think he made it because he fears this new Juve team that’s emerging, a side that will give everyone a tough game.
“The way I see it, we start on a par with the Milan clubs.” Pirlo and Juventus will meet Inter and Milan in August for the annual TIM Cup in Bari. Pirlo’s new side finished third in the last edition of this tournament.
