Andrea Pirlo believes he made the right decision in leaving AC Milan for Juventus, and wants to repay the Turin club’s fans.

The 32-year-old midfielder left the Italian champions to join Antonio Conte’s men in the off-season, after spending 10 years with the San Siro outfit.

Despite the decision to leave Massimiliano Allegri’s men being a risk for the Italy international, the Lombardy-born midfielder thinks he made the right choice in changing clubs.

“I needed new challenges and I am increasingly convinced that I have made the right choice coming to Juventus,” Pirlo told Tuttosport.

“I had the desire to begin a new adventure, but also curiosity.”

Juventus have started the campaign strongly, and are joint-top of Serie A alongside Pirlo’s former club Milan on 34 points.

Pirlo, who boasts 81 caps for Italy, has high hopes for Juve, and wants to repay the team’s supporters with success.

“We are hungry and in 2012 we want to give the fans the satisfaction they deserve,” he said.

“They welcomed me from day one with affection and esteem, and I want to reciprocate the courtesy.”
