The experienced Italian international also took advantage of the interview to praise ‘rookie’ Coach Antonio Conte.
The 32-year-old has fond memories of his time with the Diavolo, but he admits that their attempt to get him suspended for a Cup game after an alleged elbow on Van Bommel was uncalled for.
“But the real reason behind why I left Milan was because Allegri wanted to use Massimo Ambrosini or Mark Van Bommel in front of the defence instead of me.
“And now those same people thank me because they went and put money on us winning the Scudetto…”
Some were surprised by Pirlo’s decision to leave champions Milan for a team who had finished the previous two seasons in seventh place.
“Milan decided that I was no longer useful to them. I understood that immediately during our meeting.”
The playmaker quit the Rossoneri on a Bosman last summer to join Juventus and he subsequently inspired their Scudetto success.
“I then replied that when I decide to join another club, I do it网络外围投注 because I want to win. And I also said that we would win the Italian championship.
“Conte is a great. I’ve had a lot of Coaches in my career, but never one who has been so prepared, so meticulous in his work and who explains things so well.
Andrea Pirlo has revealed that he left Milan because he was no longer in the first team plans of boss Massimiliano Allegri.
“But we’ll need a few signings to complete the squad, even if we would have done well in the competition this season.”
“That annoyed me,” he continued. “I played there for 10 years and th六合投注网站ey know that I don’t do certain things…”
“We watch videos of our opponents three or four times a week and it's difficult for them to surprise us as a result.
With the Scudetto won, Pirlo now believes that his side can be a force in next season’s Champions League.
“A lot of my former teammates told me that they missed me during the campaign,” he added. “But I’m happy as I won.
“That meant that I had to change position on the pitch. So I said ‘no thanks’ to Milan and chose Juventus.
While Juventus enjoyed the assists of Pirlo, Milan did struggle at times without his calmness and vision.
“Almost all of my former teammates at Milan sent me text messages congratulating me on winning the Scudetto.”
“Milan offered me a one-year extension, but I wanted three years because I was younger than the other players whose contracts were expiring,” he told the Gazzetta dello Sport.
“When I was at Gig真人外围投注i Buffon’s wedding in June last year, people asked me if I was crazy because I had left,” he added.
“This Juve is one of the strongest ever in terms of mentality and pride,” he commented. “We can make a bid for the Champions League as we are now by playing in the same way.
“In terms of tactics and the way he teaches, he’s better than Carlo Ancelotti and Marcello Lippi.”
