    5 Italians in the all time eleven? We know Pirlo is patriotic, but this is ridiculous.
    Inzaghi picked ahead of CR7, Thierry Henry, Drogba, Etoo, Suarez, Lewandowski, Van Basten? Hehehehehe! In the midfield, what is Scholes doing there? And Gattuso? No Iniesta, no Zidane, no Lothar Matthaus, no Gullit, no Rijkaard?
    This is ogogoro selection. If this is how Pirlo is going to manage Juventus next season, the fans have much to fear!

  • I don’t know what happens to Pirlo

  • I thought I was the only one laughing at this pirlo selection.. Only God can save Juve from relegation if this is how he intended to coach them. Lolz

    This is Corona ecentric selection. Just because you are an Italian, then you now pack all your childhood friends into best eleven, I don’t know you like parapo like this pirlo.

    I don’t know what Mr. Pirlo smoked before this interview. Going by the selection, it must be some very strong substance. The man needs to cool down. Smoking all this things that scatter the brain will not help him in his new job!
