Pirlo renewal already signed?

The Gazzetta dello Sport say that Andrea Pirlo has already signed his two-year contract extension with Juventus.

The midfielder has been increasingly reported in recent days as having agreed terms on a new two-year contract to commit him to Turin until June 2016, on an annual salary of €4m, including bonuses.

The Gazzetta dello Sport today suggest that the 34-year-old has now signed the renewal, with official confirmation on this to arrive ‘soon after’ February 2.

Whilst it is believed by the publication that minor details to the agreement remain to be ironed out, they do not compromise Pirlo’s renewal with the current League leaders and defending champions.

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1929203-4-reasons-juventus-andrea-pirlo-is-still-successful


ANDREA PIRLO: is one of the greatest midfielders ever to play the game. Over the course of his glorious career, he has won four Scudetti (and is well on his way to a fifth), two Champions League crowns, a Coppa Italia, three Supercoppas and two UEFA Super Cups.

Along with his club accolades comes his crowning achievement: the 2006 World Cup title.

Pirlo is a dying breed in the modern game. With powerful, goalscoring box-to-box midfielders like Yaya Toure and Pirlo's Juventus teammate Arturo Vidal coming to prominence, the deep-lying "regista" position that Pirlo has made his own since his days on loan with Brescia in 2001 is becoming less prevalent. Such is the brilliance of the man called "l'architetto" that he has kept the role alive almost single-handedly.

No career can last forever, and at 34 years old, Pirlo's finally beginning to wind down. He announced last year that he would retire from international soccer after this summer's World Cup, and there is uncertainty over the status of his contract negotiations with Juventus.

Despite his age, he continues to excel on the field. What's the secret behind his sustained success? Let's take a look and find out.

no player can go forever in his mid-30s, and even Pirlo has accepted that he'll need the occasional day on the bench.

Antonio Conte has occasionally subbed Pirlo off this season as the situation dictated. Whether to rest him after the job is done, or as was the case two weeks ago when Juve played Catania, Conte simply wanted to up the tempo; Pirlo has been rested more often than in seasons past. Not counting the December match where he left after 14 minutes due to injury, Pirlo has played less than the full 90 minutes five times—more than has been normal for him in a relatively healthy season.

Conte has also given Pirlo more games off—like last week against Sampdoria. The month-long layoff forced by his leg injury probably didn't hurt him either. It would have allowed him to give the rest of his body some time off while his knee recovered.

Looking into the future, the lack of an international commitment after the World Cup in the summer will be a major help for extending his club career in the future. The summer without extensive international fixtures has been rare for Pirlo, and without that, you can be certain Pirlo's batteries will be recharged every season.

One of Pirlo's greatest assets is something that isn't subject to Father Time: his vision.

Pirlo excels at finding open teammates from distance and extrapolating which players can make it to a long ball into space.

A skill like that isn't going to go away, and so long as he has the room to maneuver, it will allow him to find his teammates whether he's 34 or 24.

Now that Pirlo is older and less able to create space to operate from deep on his own, he is more dependent on his teammates to keep opposing defenders off of him and allow him the room to work his magic.

He is fortunate that both club and country provide the perfect men for the job.

At Juve, Pirlo has the incomparable Arturo Vidal at his side. Vidal is a prime target for Pirlo's passes when he's in the box, but the Chilean superstar is just as important to Pirlo further back. Vidal's own offensive capabilities and the physical play off the ball that has given him the nickname Il Guerriero clears players away from Pirlo so the maestro can pick out his passes.

Similarly, Pirlo can rely on the pit bull style of Daniele De Rossi when he is on international duty. The two have been a team for the Azzurri since the 2006 World Cup, and their rapport has become excellent. Like Vidal, De Rossi is hard-nosed in the tackle but dangerous enough on the ball to afford Pirlo the space to operate.

Without players like this backing him up, Pirlo would be subject to tight marking and unable to find the time to play his game. With players like De Rossi and Vidal at his back, he can deliver the passes that have made him famous.

The nature of the regista position makes it ideally suited for a player of Pirlo's age.

Unlike many younger midfielders, like his teammates Arturo Vidal, Claudio Marchisio and Paul Pogba, Pirlo's position and role in the side allows him to avoid lung-searing, long-distance sprints from box to box.

Instead, Pirlo can afford to be more economical in his movement. He can trigger a move with a long ball and then glide from a spot right in front of the back line to a more advanced position in the opposing half, where he can direct proceedings with his pinpoint passes. If his team loses possession, Pirlo can then get back into a defensive position without expending as much energy as his midfield mates, who are farther into the opposing box.

This economy of movement allows him to save real burst for situations where it's truly needed and puts less overall stress on his aging muscles and joints, keeping him fresher for longer.

I believe that PIRLO adds INTELLIGENCE on the BACK:

There are moments when you only want to COUNTER ATTACK; and you don't really want PIRLO on the team; But there are moments when COUNTER ATTACKS never happen; and you need INTELLIGENCE on the BACK to push forward; and that is when PIRLO starts to SHINE;

one of greatest examples about INTELLIGENCE on the back; is BARCELONA; TIKA TAKA

DEFENDERS are not supposed only to KICK the ball forward and have no responsibilities; because BALL POSSESSION depends on all the players on the back: DEFENDERS, WING BACKS, CENTER MIDFIELDERS

PIRLO have gave some important lessons to the TEAM about; HOW they are supposed to PUSH FORWARD; when they are supposed to PASS THE BALL FORWARD: without putting the ball on TOO MUCH PRESSURE...

INTELLIGENCE on the BACK is important; for lots of reasons;

TO OVERCOME PRESSURE OF OPPONENTS
TO HAVE FUN WITH THE BALL; WITHOUT GETTING TIRED
TO CREATE CHANCES TO SCORE GOALS FROM THE BACK; INSTEAD OF EXPECTING TOO MUCH FROM STRIKERS
WHEN YOU SCORE GOAL; THAN WITH THE BALL POSSESSION LIKE BARCELONA; YOU LOSE TIME, WITHOUT PANIC, YOU MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR OPPONENTS INSTEAD OF PARKING THE BUS AND PREY THAT OPPONENTS WILL NOT SCORE A GOAL...

When I watch JUVENTUS today I can see all players have learned important lessons about ball possession but; CHIELLINI, BARZAGLI, MARCHISIO, LINCHTAINER: have became INTELLIGENT almost as much as PIRLO:

However; this does not mean that we don't need PIRLO anymore; because he is a NATURAL WINNER: just like IBRAHIMOVIC; intelligent Players

I like Pirlo and I think he's amazing when he's playing good, but was it really worth it to extend his contract? doesn't he get around 3-4 million each year, if he keeps playing like this, renewing his contract wouldn't have been a great idea. But if we didn't renew, we could've used that money on Pogba's contract, and/or the player we got to replace him (if we did get anyone to replace him). I just hope Pirlo starts playing good again.

He really bounced back today after that horror show at Roma.

Great overall performance including a brilliant assist on that first goal.

I don't want to take away the merits to him, of course, but terrible tactics of Mazzarri .
If you want trying to limit Pirlo you  have to put a man on him . Ok there was not Cambiasso but it's not excuse. He had so much space  probably even Pirlo not believed to his eyes.
Zeman-esque strategy , only him and the Bohemian have done so with Pirlo .

we would have subbed Marchisio for Pirlo and the team would be become even more attacking minded and aggressive

It was exclusively a matter about Pirlo's great performance, imo helped by Zeman-esque strategy of Mazzarri on him , not about Juventus.
I think we would have lost equally of course , we are in awful moment and even Roma and Napoli lost to Juventus Stadium, and  for 3-0.

Juve to announce Pirlo extension?


An announcement will be made in the next few days that will confirm Andrea Pirlo’s stay at Juventus until 2016, it is reported.

With his contract at the Bianconeri to end in the summer, there had been fears that the veteran midfielder would leave the club on a free at the end of the season.

Tottenham and Inter had both been linked with moves for the World Cup-winner, however, Corriere dello Sport claim this morning that the Turin outfit will reveal, before the end of the week, that the 35-year-old will stay until 2016.

Even in the autumn of his career, Juve have had no qualms about offering Pirlo and extension that will see him stick with the club until his 37th birthday.

"We've talked about several times. Pirlo to Juventus is at his house, we've already verbally agreed, there are no problems in this regard. Coming now to formalize the position."

I wish he was used against serie A teams who sit back against us, and as a sub in big games. But sadly, he'll be one of the first names in the line up with a 4M wage.

If Milan can absolutely dominate him, what will the best teams in Europe do to him nowadays? The ones who can press effectively and consistently.

Pirlo is actually at his best when he is pressed as it eliminates his languid and almost complacent play during when he is afforded much space. He simply creates better when he has to navigate around pressure into which all the high pressure from the opposition creates space to exploit for the forwards who are looking to counter or link-up. Example is Cesare Prandelli for Italia using him in this fashion while Conte shoots himself in the foot when he deploys THAT "counter-attacking" system to which has Juve's play as redundant in attack and ironically even in defence.

Yesterday 1st half was a classic example of "Conte-Gate" in which he unnecessarily slotted his team on the counter and put Pirlo in the disastrous defensive role he did versus Bayern and Roma.
