Andrea Pirlo will be the new Juventus coach after the release of Maurizio Sarri. This is Andrea Agnelli's surprise move.
Andrea Pirlo is the new Juventus coach after being chosen to coach Juventus under 23. Without ever coaching her, she immediately goes to the first team. A completely unexpected move by the Juventus club.
In fact, after Sarri's exoneration, different names were circulating, Zidane, Allegri, Pochettino… But Juventus decided to focus on the midfielder who wore the Juventus shirt for years after Milan.
Here is the official Juventus press release.
“Andrea Pirlo will be the new Juventus coach. 41 years old, born in Flero in the province of Brescia, Andrea Pirlo has a legendary career as a footballer that has led him to win everything, from the Champions League to the World Championship in 2006. In his four years at the helm of Juventus midfield, Pirlo has won as many league titles, an Italian Cup and two Super Cups.
Today begins a new chapter of his career in the world of football. As it was said about a week ago: from Maestro to Mister. From today he will be THE Coach for the Juventus people, as the club has decided to entrust him with the technical leadership of the First Team, after having already selected him for Juventus Under23.
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.
Andrea Pirlo today signed a two-year contract until 30 June 2022 ″.
Maurizio Sarri exonerated . It is not a decision that came as a surprise as the Tuscan coach, who joined Juventus last summer, paid for his exit in the Champions League round of 16 against Lyon and a game that has never completely convinced fans and clubs.
Agnelli had said it would take a few days to decide, but less than 24 hours after elimination with Lyon he has already chosen.
To keep the place in Sarri it was not enough to win the championship, the ninth in a row. The premature exit from the Champions League convinced the club to change technical leadership. (Source Ansa).
