Pirlo Coy On Chelsea Links  (Sky Sports)

Andrea PirloAndrea Pirlo has refused to rule out joining Chelsea's coaching staff following his retirement from playing.

The Italian midfielder, currently with New York City, confirmed on Sunday that he will conclude his career at the end of the current Major League Soccer season at the age of 38.

Pirlo played under Antonio Conte for both Juventus and Italy during a superb playing career which saw him win six Serie A titles, two Champions Leagues, and a World Cup.

And he was coy when asked about speculation of a reunion with Conte at Stamford Bridge.

"My future, I don't know yet. I will return to Italy in December," he told Gazetta dello Sport.

"An assistant to Conte? People are saying that. I have my ideas but I need time to decide."

Pirlo has spent the past three years in New York but has featured in just 15 of the club's 32 games this season.
