Andrea Pirlo is reportedly on the verge of signing with New York City FC (and, by extension, Man City), so he was in attendance at their New York derby match against the Red Bulls with his family. And he was feeling saucy.
NYCFC got out to an early lead when Thomas McNamara scored in the sixth minute, but Bradley Wright-Phillips equalized for the Red Bulls shortly after halftime. Pirlo was more concerned with kissing on his
wife girlfriend than what was happening on the pitch, however.
The bearded legend did separate his mouth from his girlfriend’s face long enough to sit with supposed NYCFC player Frank Lampard.
In addition to those two, Gareth Bale was also in attendance, presumably just to get away from the jeering Madrid fans.

And so was LL Cool J, who would be an interesting signing in his own right.
NYCFC really could have used all the stars who were in the stands on the pitch, though. The Red Bulls won 3-1.
