Andrea Pirlo, born on May 19th, 1979 in Lombardy, Italy is an Italian footballer who plays deep in the midfield and is observed for his phenomenal, playmaking capability, dribbling, and an authority of the game, vision, passing ability, and set-piece shows. He currently plays for New York City FC and still in the limelight at the age of 37.
Arrogant? Maybe. Aloof? okay. Idolized by everybody? Absolutely!
Pirlo: The Best Late Bloomer
As his tag in Italy goes, “l’architetto”, which explains the architect, provided the prime movement of the ball from the midfield and anywhere else, proving his bubbly presence in the match from the start to finish while sadly concluding England’s elimination and Joe Hart’s degradation from a posh, witty, grand and risky penalty. Like most of his eminent interactions with the football, he sent it floating in slow motion right in the center of the goal, leaving the net snapped and fondled by a charming spinning football. Such an operation when country matters are at stake and especially at the age he is in, not only proves bravery and godlike guide but gargantuan trust in one’s capacity. Supremacy, when mastered with such magnitude, would not support classification as skill but art.Pirlo is relishing the sunniest of career autumns, the pinnacle of cool in his chic beard and elegant hair. His distinguished passing and defiance to yield possession. The headlong amount of check Pirlo has over the ball is sometimes evocative of a circus step rather than a match of football.
All about Pirlo’s Life
Pirlo has been characterized a “safe” by his teammates who confessed how giving the ball to the veteran master feels like bolting it in one. A very comparable applause came from the French squad when a certain Zidane was at his prime. It doesn’t seem dense to guess why. So far, Pirlo’s authority has been shrewd and judging by his performance in the recent European tournament, his handling of the brain, body and feet have been in splendid synchronization when required. From his 33rd year, he relished perhaps the perfect individual opportunities of his career. He was the catalyst for late club Juventus, who had been in the slump since the Calciopoli dilemma, moving them to the Scudetto without failing a game before headlining at Euros 2012, where he was unplayable in the knockout wins over England and Germany. If anyone kept a close view on the approach to the precise execution of flying stopovers, agile mazy dribbles, and some acute touches, the singleness of Andrea Pirlo would remain unchallenged. He has created more than ample history during a sparkling career. He has won approximately every major banner for his nation and club – two Champions Leagues, a World Cup, six Scudetti and European Under-21 Championship amid 19 team honors.
He is appealed because he is so rare. Right away recognizable with or without his running locks and tamp beard to gaze L’architetto comfortably glide over the pitch, inspiring the ball and his team-mates like a chess-master and quirking home stylish free-kicks is real elegance. For purists of the sport, Pirlo is everything that a footballer should be. He might be slow, he is weak, he doesn’t head, defend or run, but there is his genius from a technical and mental vantage point that he is still sacrosanct. It might just be time to rethink our image regarding veterans as they just sound to have justified and still be proving enough to show that they aren’t silky dessert, at least not anymore, not in this era. P for Pirlo, P for passion, P for perfection, P for precision, P for a player you find once in a millennium.
