World Cup winner and playmaker extraordinaire Andrea Pirlo is ready to hang up his boots.

The 38-year-old said he plans to retire at the end of the Major League Soccer season, closing the curtain on a decorated career spanning two decades.

“You realise yourself that the time has come. Each day, you have physical problems and you can’t train as you would like because there’s always some niggle,” the former Inter, AC Milan, and Juventus midfielder told La Gazzetta dello Sport, courtesy of ESPN FC.

“At my age, it’s fine to say enough is enough. You don’t have to carry on until you are 50. I’ll do something else.”

More to come.
