Pirlo dismisses New York City exit speculation

The veteran former Juventus midfielder has seen his name linked with sides such as Inter and Manchester City lately, but reiterated his commitment to the MLS via Twitter


Andrea Pirlo has dismissed suggestions he could make a swift return to European football, insisting he is happy to be in the MLS with New York City. 

Recent rumours have linked the former Juventus star with Manchester City and Inter, after he left Turin for the Big Apple in the summer.

But a message left on Pirlo’s Twitter account appeared to show he was not considering a move away from the United States.

“Finally back to work,” the Italian said on the social media site, with an intriguing selection of hashtags following.

“#nycfc #BackHome #ny #StopRumors #PirloStyle”. 

Pirlo struggled to make an impact in MLS following his much-heralded move, playing 13 games as the new franchise finised 17th overall and missed out on the play-offs.
