Pirlo admits following Leeds midfielder Phillips

Italy great Andrea Pirlo admits Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips.

Phillips won praise for his form with England at Euro 2020.

“It's true. In England, there's never been this kind of player. There have been great midfielders over the years with different skills. There's the boy at Leeds, who's a bit of a regista," Pirlo told The Athletic.

“But," Pirlo said with a twinkle in his eye, “we're a bit different.

"He doesn't have the same characteristics I had. You've always had box-to-box midfielders, like Frank Lampard."
