Andrea Pirlo comes to childhood club Brescia's rescue
Juventus playmaker Andrea Pirlo has revealed that he feels very disappointed watching Serie B side Brescia’s financial struggles. He has offered to help them in order to avoid bankruptcy and it looks like the club could also get Roberto Baggio (who played for them during the final stages of his career) as their coach.
“I am suffering so much seeing the team I cheer on in such dire conditions,” said Pirlo while talking to Il Giornale di Brescia.
Pirlo began football career at Brescia in 1994
“I spoke to important people, those who really mean something in this fight. You know much I care about Brescia, so I’m suffering to see the club I grew up in and the one I support in this situation.”
He added, “I think I’ve done everything in my capabilities, speaking for a long time to those who are dealing directly with the situation. There will be further contact and I certainly won’t give up the ghost now.”
Pirlo began his career at Brescia’s youth academy in 1994 and spent four years with them before moving to AC Milan with whom he enjoyed tremendous success.
