Why letting Pirlo go was a mistake

Posted on | October 5, 2011 | No Comments

AC Milan have not offered Andrea Pirlo a contract renewal and the 32 years old midfielder joined Juventus for free.

The move proved to be a huge mistake as Pirlo was one of the best players at Juventus. More than that it seems that Juventus have recovered after a few years of mediocrity and after five games they are on top of Serie A standings.

In the last game they beat their rivals from Milan in a categorical manner. Pirlo once again was one of the best players on the field.

If at the beginning nobody contested the Serie A champions now more and more persons are criticizing Milan and their staff because of letting Pirlo go.

Zvonimir Boban and Demetrio Albertini both AC Milan legends believe that losing Pirlo is a big mistake. Also Catania Pietro Lo Monaco believes that Pirlo is the main architect at Juventus and if you take him out from the team Juventus will be again a weak team.

Pirlo is the king of midfield playmaker that is so wanted this days.

Pirlo started his career at Brescia, joined Inter in 1998 where he spent three years but failed to make an impact. In 2001 he joined Milan and since then he developed into a key player of the team. Here he won almost everything with the club.

He made 284 appearances for Milan and scored 32 goals. For the national team he played in 77 games and scored 9 goals.
