Believe me I'm not a fan of Pirlo at all. That said, the mere fact that their outputs are comparable is an indicator of how much more useful Ladri fairy boy was.....keeping in mind he played in a more withdrawn position. Stop making me defend the guyPirlo assisted 72 goals in his whole career up until now in all competitions.
Rui Costa assisted 65 just in the 5 seasons with Milan.
And Pirlo had a lot easier job in the back,protected by the defence and gattuso or ambro helping him out, there was a lot more pressure up front on Rui Costa with opposition defences and defensive midfielders trying to close him down.
A lot of people are deluded by Pirlo's season with Juventus last year. He has to step up there and provide assists cause the forwards can't do it themselves and he has a lot more space to do so in a 5 man midfield, where they relieve him of opposition presure.
But overall, Rui Costa's individual skill, workrate, passing, playing under pressure, creating space, everything he did for the team, the effort he put in shits all over Pirlo.
