Pirlo played for Ancelotti at AC Milan.
â€śI think Pirlo could win the Ballon dâ€™Or,â€ť revealed Ancelotti.
â€śItaly can relax for the next World Cup, as they already have an alternative to Pirlo in midfield and his name is Marco Verratti.
â€śOf course, heâ€™ll need to go a long way to reach Pirloâ€™s level! In his position he has to leave the ball very quickly, but he is fantastic with his control. He doesnâ€™t feel the pressure of the opponent. I hope in future he can become even quicker at releasing the pass.â€ť
