Like every player who has spent a long time in the game seem to be doing now. Pirlo has penned an open letter to Juventus fans.
The veteran midfielder joined New York City FC, but has penned a thank you letter to fans and staff of Juventus, where he helped them win the scudetto after joining from Milan in 2011.
“It can be difficult to put emotions into words, especially when they involve four years that have been so important in my life,” he tweeted.
“I can only say a huge THANK YOU to all who have accompanied me and supported me in this adventure: the club, FC Juventus, from our president to every single person that works there; my team-mates of many battles, lots of laughter and some tears; the fans and all those who have always followed us with affection even when things were less beautiful.
“Many thanks to all of you. It was not an easy decision, but it’s time to start a new adventure, but I will never forget the relationship I have with these colours. Until the end FORZA JUVENTUS.”
