Juventus announce Andrea Pirlo returning as U23 head coach. World Cup winner with Italy in 2006 takes first job in management.
Andrea Pirlo is returning to Juventus as the head coach of the club’s U23 team.
It is the former Juventus and AC Milan midfielder’s first role in coaching.
Pirlo, who won the World Cup with Italy in 2006, left Juventus five years ago after four successful seasons in Turin, winning the league title four times, as well as one Coppa Italia and two Italian Super Cups.
He finished his career in MLS, playing for New York City, before eventually retiring from football in 2017.
But after three years away from the sport, the 41-year-old is heading back to Turin to begin his coaching career.
