When Andrea Pirlo Took The 'Worst Corner Ever' And It Became A Meme
He may have been known as the suavest deep lying playmaker of all time, but Andrea Pirlo's didn't exactly set the world on fire at New York City FC.
Granted, the former Juventus and AC Milan midfielder looked delightfully dapper in every photo he's shared since making the move to the Big Apple but his performances were, shall we say lackadaisical?
And to confirm just how far the Italian legend has let his impeccable standards slip, he proceeded to take one of the worst corners we've ever seen during NYCFC's MLS match with Vancouver Whitecaps.
A corner so bad, MLS's official Youtube channel couldn't resist parodying it.

Then again, Pirlo did assist David Villa well taken volleyed effort in the same game, so it's not as if he's completely lost his magic touch.
To be fair, Pirlo was never been one to put himself about on a football pitch.
The six-time Serie A and two-time Champions League winner's game, particular when he got older, was always been to run the game from deep and let the ball do the work.
The Italian is widely viewed as one of the most technically gifted players ever to play the game. He makes everything look easy and effortless.
So we can let him off with this one.
