We are a bit in love with Pirlo at the Football Shirt Collective. Assists, goals and amazing quotes. The man is a legend.
Michael Cox thought he was the most important
Is he best player of his generation? Not quite, but he is the most important.
Gianluigi Buffon thought he was the signing of the century
A player of his level and ability, not to mention that he was free, I think was the signing of the century. [On Sunday] I thought God exists because it’s truly embarrassing just how good he is.
Pirlo was ugly but happy
If I look in the mirror when I get up, or before going to bed a night, i see a man of average ugliness…But I also see a man who’s completely happy with the figure staring back at him. Who’s proud of every single second of his past.
And he didn’t feel pressure
I don’t feel pressure. I don’t give a toss about it. I spent the afternoon of Sunday, July 9, 2006 in Berlin sleeping and playing the PlayStation. In the evening, I went out and won the World Cup.
