10 best excerpts from Andrea Pirlo's 'I Think, Therefore I Play'
#3 ‘After the wheel, the Playstation is the best invention of all time...’
Pirlo constantly refers to his constant muse – the Playstation – at innumerable junctures in the book. His favourite opponent was (and probably still is) his legendary Milan and Italian international teammate Alessandro Nesta, who he played with for 9 years at the San Siro.
At the beginning of Chapter 4, in which he talks about how his negotiations with Pep Guardiola and Barcelona failed due to Milan’s no-sale policy for him, Pirlo speaks the following words which would hearten every Playstation fan: ‘After the wheel, the Playstation is the best invention of all time. And ever since it’s existed, I’ve been Barcelona, apart from a brief spell way back at the start when I’d go Milan.’
So much for being a Milan legend.
