“We are convinced that on his debut on the bench, Pirlo has everything it takes to lead an excellent and talented team to new successes,” said the club’s management by Matthijs de Ligt and Cristiano Ronaldo, among others. The 41-year-old Italian, world champion in 2006, signed a two-year contract as Juventus’ head coach. Pirlo has no experience as a trainer yet.
‘Il Maestro’ was the midfield director at Juventus between 2011 and 2015, winning four league titles. The Italian did not manage to win the Champions League with the club from Turin, something he did twice before with AC Milan.
Pirlo was supposed to gain experience in Serie C as a coach at Juventus Under 23. “I also had offers from Serie A and Premier League clubs, but this is the right way to start,” he said. a week ago at his presentation. Juventus took the national title for the ninth year in a row under Sarri this season, but the so-desired success in the Champions League again failed to materialize. The Italian superpower was eliminated by Olympique Lyon in the eighth finals on Friday and that was reason for the club management to sack Sarri.
The successors mentioned include Zinedine Zidane, Simone Inzaghi, Mauricio Pochettino and Massimiliano Allegri. Juventus, however, chose Pirlo, who is promoted very quickly and now makes his debut as a trainer with the A-team.
