The storied New York City FC midfielder, who recently announced his retirement from the game at the end of the current MLS season, worked under the current Chelsea boss during his spell at Juventus and also on global duty with the Italian national team.

The 2006 World Cup victor with Italy started 32 games for NYCFC in 2016, logging one goal and 10 assists before he ultimately fell out of favor with head coach Patrick Vieira this season, effectively losing his starting midfield role to 19-year-old Yangel Herrera.

But Germany 2006 champion Pirlo, who on Sunday announced his impending retirement from a decorated 22-year playing career, is confident results will soon improve.
