Just hours after Maurizio Sarri had been sacked, Juventus appointed Andrea Pirlo as their new Head Coach. For the 41-year-old, who has never managed before at youth and senior level, this would be a huge challenge.
Juventus has sacked Sarri for the failure in Champions League.
Pirlo was only appointed head coach of the club of the Under-23 last month but was granted an important promotion before taking over one match with the Series C gear.
Statement from Juventus reads “Today’s choice is based on the belief that Pirlo has what it takes to lead from his debut on the bench, an expert and talented squad to pursue new successes,”
The two-year contract, until 30 June 2022 was signed by Andrea Pirlo.
