Andrea Pirlo has today announced plans to leave Juventus and move to New York to “finally open that little artisan pancake place” he’s always dreamed about, according to sources close to the Italian legend.
Pirlo was photographed over the weekend attending a New York Yankees game, leading some to speculate that he may be joining New York based MLS side New York City FC. The former midfielder however denied this was the case, insisting that he was in fact scouting locations for his new organic pancake and coffee house in Greenwich Village.
“Sports are so pedestrian,” said the fourth most capped player in Italy’s history. “I want to provide people with a taste of home, with a twist. Our home made pancakes – made with organic and kosher flour we mill ourselves on site – will be served with fresh cream and grapes, both imported from my farm in Tuscany.”
“Of course our honey and maple syrup is locally sourced from organic farms within the area, this isn’t some coffee stand,” added the former Milan playmaker.
Pirlo also added that his premises would have a strict “no mobile phone” policy. “We want this to be a refuge from the outside world. You can leave that habble babble at home,” he confirmed.
