It’s all-but-official as Juventus says thanks to Pirlo, wishes him best with New York City


Juventus doesn’t have time to wait for your proper press release, New York City FC.

The legendary Serie A side waved goodbye to Andrea Pirlo on Monday, thanking him for his time with the club and wishing him luck in America.

In a sprawling, metaphor-laden thank you, Juve says Pirlo “is silent charisma” and floats the hashtag #WeAreImpressed.



Your move, Surely the MLS side is not pleased by the “leak” of the widely-speculated signing, but we bet it’s pretty jazzed to have Pirlo, Frank Lampard, Mix Diskerud and David Villa steering the attack.

Yikes. We just picture a hesitant to celebrate NYCFC fan pulling a Norm MacDonald from “Billy Madison” after a news report says a rich adult elementary school pupil bribed his principal into letting him pass a grade. “Wait, maybe it’s someone else.”

Looking forward to his Man City loan in January (wink).
