Great Quotes From Andrea Pirlo's New Autobiography
By Emmet O'Keeffe Updated

Andrea Pirlo's new autobiography entitled ‘I Think, Therefore I Play’ is being released soon and judging from some of the extracts, it should be an interesting read.

Pirlo reveals that he almost joined Chelsea and then Barcelona but on both occasions, Silvio Berlusconi 'stepped in.'

Pirlo also articulates his disappointment at only receiving a Cartier pen with the AC Milan crest on it as a fairwell gift after he left Milan to join Juventus in 2011. "A lovely pen, but still a pen. Filled with banal blue ink... My 10 years of Milan, gone like that. I smiled anyway."

In true stylish Pirlo fashion, he describes being played on the left of midfield rather than his usual central midfield position by AC Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri . "I still thought I could give my best there. A fish breathes when it is in deep water. It makes do when near the surface, but it’s not the same thing."
