There are some players who find that the time has come to retire from the game, and Andrea Pirlo as part of the Italian team finds that his role in the team has come to an end.
Andrea stated that Conte will probably be looking at other players for taking up the midfielder position. Andrea has had a laminated career where he has had the opportunity of playing in different international teams. For instance, he has left Juventus in the last summer season when he was given the offer to join New York City FC. The player has been part of the Euro 2016 this year, but he feels that his role is no longer with the team.
He is considered a veteran playmaker, but like all footballers, everyone needs to decide when their role has come to an end and when to exit an active playing career from the field. Again, playing for a club is different from playing for a national level team. Andrea has realized this when he was picked to play for Italy. The dynamics are different as most players come in from different clubs as opposed to being part of a football club altogether, even though many might come from other clubs as well.
Even though the feeling of nationality does unite players in a national team, getting the right opportunities to play are difficult to achieve in the national level games as opposed to club games. Andrea has proven his mettle time and again on the field. Fans will not forget that he had helped his team achieve the World Cup in 2006 though this current championship tournament has seen him being given a limited role to play. He has been a legendary player and associated with clubs like Milan and Juventus.
