PIRLO: Four great quotes about the former Inter, Milan and Juventus hero

We are a bit in love with Andrea Pirlo on the Football Shirt Collective. Assists, goals and amazing quotes. The man is a legend.  

Here are four of our favourite quotes about the former JuventusInter Milan and AC Milan man.

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.
