Andrea Pirlo goes to work as coach of the Juventus U23 team. It is the first coach job for the former top midfielder, who returns to the Italian champion after five years.
Pirlo, now 41, played for Juventus between 2011 and 2015, winning four league titles and winning the Coppa Italia. He was previously very successful at AC Milan.
With the Milanese, Pirlo won the Champions League twice, as well as two league titles, two European Super Cups, once the World Cup for clubs and once the Italian cup.
The 116-time international, who also played for Internazionale earlier in his career, made the switch from Juventus to New York City FC in the summer of 2015. He finished his career a year and a half ago in the United States.
As an international, Pirlo reached its peak in 2006, when Italy won the World Cup in Germany with the world title by beating France in the final after penalties.
