And the Ghana international said he has always admired the Italian World Cup-winning footballer.

“Andrea Pirlo was one of my favourites and it was great for me as a player because I had an opportunity to play with him for three years,” Asamoah told Cross the Line.

“I can say that this is something great for me, it is not only about his football.

“When he was here, I saw him outside of football, his personality, his way of talking to people, he is a very nice person and very humble.

“When you talk about Andrea, there are a lot of people who know that he is a very good player, but if you get close to him then you know that he is a different person.
