Andrea Pirlo responds to rumours he will join Antonio Conte at Chelsea

Andrea Pirlo responds to rumours he will join Antonio Conte at Chelsea

The World Cup victor has announced that he is to call time on his playing days at the end of his New York City contract.

Few things go together as well as worldwide breaks and baseless speculation, especially when said speculation actually has some basis to build on (thus technically making them not baseless, just sensationalist), such as the speculation surrounding Antonio Conte's Chelsea future.

At 38 years of age, the iconic midfielder is ready to take his career in a different direction.

"Our job is hard because you have a lot of pressure every season and there is a loss you, think "maybe I need a bit of rest".

Conte had been linked with a move back to Italy and in particular AC Milan following translated reports, he claims were incorrect, had labelled him "homesick".

"Another situation I want to clarify is that my family stay here with me, not in Italy".

"I spoke with him and I think Charly understood his mistake".

Pirlo had previously hinted that he could be tempted to cut his coaching teeth in England.

"An assistant to Conte? At the same time, I always say our job is hard and is odd".

While Pirlo has distanced himself from such a role, Conte has also sought to quash the rumours of an imminent arrival in west London.

"Last season, honestly, I suffered a lot because when you arrive in a new country and you are alone and know that your family don't stay here it is not simple". We must have patience with him.

The 48-year-old had admitted in an Italian interview that he missed his homeland but now he is adamant he will see out the remaining two years of his contract at least.

"I did an interview two weeks ago and the translation was wrong", he suggested.
