Andrea Pirlo lost control of his body water flow after Juventus were helplessly confined to a 3-1 defeat at the Berlin Olympic Stadium in Saturday’s Champions League final.
However, the 36-year-old Italian playmaker has revealed that his tears on the pitch immediately after the final whistle were not because he was saying goodbye to Juventus or football yet.
Pirlo has been with Juventus since 2011.
“Were my tears a goodbye to Juventus? No, they were for the defeat,” the veteran midfielder told Sky Italia.
“It is simply the kind of opportunity that I will rarely get again.”
