The Daily Drool: Andrea Pirlo

7 Jul

Fierce midfielder Andrea has had a long and storied career. He began with Brescia (1995-1998) then went to Inter Milan (from 1998-2001 including loan stints with Reggina and Brescia) but the bulk of his career has been with AC Milan (2001-2011). During that time, he won 2 Scudetto, 2 Champions League titles, 2 UEFA Super Cups and 1 Italian Cup. After this season, his contract was not renewed and Juventus snapped him up. I’m really looking forward to seeing him play with them this summer.  He played with the Italian U21 squad (1998-2002) captaining them on their 2000 European Championship. He played on the Italian Olympic team (2000-2004) taking home a bronze in 2004. He has been a member of the Italian senior national team since 2002 and was a member of their World Cup winning side in 2006.

        An excellent question. I’m going to have to muse upon that!
