Juventus appoint Andrea Pirlo as their head coach
The former Italian international joined the club on a two-year deal after agreeing to become Maurizio Sarri’s successor.
Andrea Pirlo has been appointed as the new head coach of the Juventus Football Club after replacing the outgoing manager Maurizio Sarri who faced the exit after their Champions League exit on Friday.
The 41-year-old who was confirmed as the new coach of the U-23 side of the club last month is now appointed as the head coach of the senior team after the sacking of Maurizio Sarri.
Pirlo, who has no prior experience of coaching youth or senior side has signed a two year deal with the Turin based club. He played for Juventus between 2011 to 2015 and won four consecutive Serie A titles during his time at the club.
Pirlo also played for AC Milan, Inter Milan, and New York City during his illustrious career and won the UEFA Champions League twice with the Rossoneri in 2003 and 2007 and was a World Cup winner in 2006 with Italy.
Juventus will be Andrea Pirlo’s first club in his management career after joining the club on Saturday.
