Pirlo returned from a hip injury to start Juventus' 3-2 win over Roma on Sunday, finishing with one off-target shot and two fouls drawn.

Pirlo took only one shot during the match, though he's never been a high-volume shooter anyway. He continues to be exceptionally dangerous on free kicks, but he's not a big scorer and doesn't garner a ton of assists any more, making him a bigger name than a great fantasy play.

Pirlo is expected to miss up to a month of action after damaging ligaments in his knee during Sunday's win over Udinese, the Associated Press reports.

The club said that he had a "second-degree lesion to the collateral medial ligament in his right knee," and didn't technically give him a timeline for a return. However long it will be, it's doubtful we'll see Pirlo back before 2014.

Pirlo, whose contract expires at the end of this season, would like to renew his deal with Juventus, Football Italia reports.

Pirlo, 34, was linked with a possible move to Real Madrid this summer but the Spanish giant never made a formal bid for the Italian's services. He mentioned that he understands Juventus may want to go in another direction given his age, although he continues to be a very solid contributor to the club.
