Frank Lampard has revealed he has been trying to get his New York City FC team-mate and famed wine connoisseur Andrea Pirlo onto a different form of beverage...beer.

"I always try to get him a nice lager or a beer," Lampard told Shortlist (via the Sun). "He’s quite open to that but he is Mr Italian man, so loves his Italian restaurants, which there are a lot of in New York."

The two veteran midfielders have quickly become friends since trading Europe for the United States in 2015, often socialising with their families in the Big Apple.

"We spend time together with our other halves, go to dinner, share a glass or two of red wine. He owns a vineyard back in Italy, where he makes his own family wine, so he’s a bit of a connoisseur."
