Italian former champion Andrea Pirlo is the new manager of Juventus FC! This is the choice of the Juventus board after a very difficult year, with the victory of the 9th Italian Serie A in a row, but with many problems from the point of view of the game.
In fact, the ideas of former coach Maurizio Sarri were never fully learned by the team, and it seems there were also problems with some Juventus stars, such as Cristiano Ronaldo and many others. For Pirlo this will be his first experience as a manager, while as a player he won everything: with Juventus he won 4 Italian Serie A, an Italian Cup and 2 Italian Super Cups, but he also won 2 UEFA Champions League with AC Milan and FIFA World 2006 Cup with Italy.
Considered as one of the greatest midfielders in history, Andrea Pirlo will lead Juventus for two years, until 2022. The elimination of Juventus in the round of 16 of the 2020 UEFA Champions League was decisive for Sarri's sacking.
