2. Andrea Pirlo: I think therefore I play
Andrea Pirlo is undoubtedly one of the greatest midfielders to grace the game. His football IQ was unmatched except by Barcelona’s Xavi Hernandez.
“All I’m after is a few square metres to be myself. Space where I can continue to profess my creed: take the ball, give it to a team-mate, team-mate scores. It’s called an assist and it’s my way of spreading happiness.”
This is one of the greatest quotes from the autobiography and could give you an indication about what to expect in the book from the Italian maestro, who was like wine, got better with the age.
Pirlo’s book is unique in itself, as it doesn’t cross chronological years of his life or doesn’t give an account of his life in all these clubs, rather will take you deep inside the mind of the midfield master.
So, if you want to read something really intriguing while in isolation, then Pirlo’s book would be a great choice to spend these days.
