And the Italian technician was quickly replaced by Andrea Pirlo appointed coach of the U23 a few weeks before. A Juve player from 2011 to 2015, the former midfielder will now lead the Bianconeri. This Sunday, the principal concerned spoke for the first time since his appointment, via Twitter.
“I am deeply happy and proud to receive such esteem and confidence from Juventus. I am ready to seize this fantastic opportunity!” Andrea Pirlo said his on his social network(Twitter). Now it’s time for the 41-year-old coach, who has signed with the Old Lady until June 2022.

Pronto per questa fantastica opportunità!
