Andrea Pirlo confirms move to NYCFC with a simple “Yes Pirlo, yes party”

July 6, 2015

New York City FC have signed Andrea Pirlo to join David Villa and Frank Lampard and the man himself confirmed his arrival with a smooth “Yes Pirlo, yes party” Vine.

From NYCFC’s official website:

In an exclusive interview with NYCFC.com, Pirlo said:

“I have been wanting this experience for a long time and now that the opportunity materialized I wanted to take it. This is a Club on the rise and shares my same hunger to achieve important results in the League. I am hoping to win.”

“I had several opportunities to play outside of Italy, but I never had a doubt in picking New York for the enthusiasm of the people that come watch the team.”

“I met with the coach, Jason Kreis, and he gave me a fantastic impression of the Club. He has well defined ideas in mind, and I am sure we will get on well and create a good relationship to train well and try to win together.”

Juventus said goodbye to Pirlo, who was with the club for four seasons (and won Serie A four times), with a tribute video.


Meanwhile, it’s thumbs and beards up in New York.
