So that's where Andrea Pirlo got it.
In this video, released by Juventus, the 34-year-old Italian midfield maestro is shown "passing" things to Juve full-back Stephan Lichtsteiner. (Said things are not a football)
During Juventus' 3-1 win over Inter Milan last weekend, Pirlo found Lichtsteiner to open the scoring with a sensational, yet so Pirlo-esque pass.
Who knew he found his technique from his table manners?
