Juventus playmaker Andrea Pirlo reveals that he likes the 'entertainment' of English football.

Juventus playmaker Andrea Pirlo has revealed that he is a big fan of the Premier League.

The 33-year-old, who nearly joined Chelsea in 2009, has enjoyed a successful time with Juve following his move from AC Milan last summer.

"I like English football a lot," the World Cup winner told the Daily Mail. "There are plenty of very good teams. They are very aggressive so it's always entertaining to watch.

"It wouldn't be a problem for me fitting into that particular style because I've played with different players with different characteristics throughout my career."

Pirlo is expected to line up for Juventus on Tuesday when they entertain Chelsea in the Champions League.
