He is often the hipsters’ choice when it comes to midfield greats but Andrea Pirlo truly was one of the best passers the game has ever seen.
Losing to Barcelona last night meant he didn’t quite reach the treble that the Serie A club and Pirlo yearned for.
Upon losing the final, one could see the pain and misery etched across his face, knowing this will more than likely be the last time he will ever appear on this stage.
The footage below will make you teary-eyed, we have no doubt.
Pirlo is a man who wears his heart on his sleeve and this video (below) from the Euro 2012 final loss to Spain shows that this wasn’t the first time there’s been major heartbreak for the Italian legend.
