I have little time for either nostalgia or resentment for Pirlo. He was just an amazing player, not a club legend. He’s played for Inter, Milan, and Juve, and never seemed like the kind of super intensely dedicated player who also becomes a fan. His book shows that too.
He was also declining, underused, and unwanted at Allegri’s Milan. I keep thinking that was an epochal mistake by Max and co. to let him go, to Juve for free of all places, but to be fair we won the scudetto too.
