Andrea Pirlo has announced he’d be retiring from his playing career at the end of the year.

The 38-year-old, who has had an illustrious career for both club and country, has been recently linked with becoming Conte’s assistant at Chelsea.

When asked, Pirlo didn’t give a definite answer as he said: “At my age you have to say enough. It is not as if you can keep going till you are 50. I will do something else.

“My future, I don’t know yet. I will return to Italy in December.

“An assistant to Conte? People are saying that. I have my ideas but I need time to decide.”

When asked about Pirlo assisting him, Conte said in his press conference:  “I knew he decided to retire and finish his career in December with New York. I can talk about him in the best way but in this moment he doesn’t know his future, what he wants to do when he finishes his career.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
