Pirlo lavishes praise on Paul Scholes and the Premier League
Mutual love from the midfield maestros.
Ahead of Saturday's Champions' League Final in Berlin against Barcelona, Juventus midfield general and probably the coolest man on the planet, Andrea Pirlo has been waxing lyrical about all things football.
He's a massive fan of Paul Scholes it seems and reckons the Premier League is the best league out there.
He told The Mirror, “I have been so fortunate to have played with so many incredible players throughout my career, but if I could pick one that I never got the chance to play with, it would be Paul Scholes.
“One of the all-time greats. A genius on the field, but private - no circus around him off it. I have a lot of respect for him.”
On the Premier League, he said, “The Premier League might not have the best team in Europe at the moment, but I still think it is the best league.
"In terms of competitiveness and having five or six teams that are chasing for the Champions League, I don’t think anybody else has that.”
