Juventus have officially appointed Andrea Pirlo, former Italy and Juventus star, as their new senior coach after sacking Maurizio Sarri.
The club confirmed ex-Chelsea boss Sarri’s exit on Saturday afternoon and announced Pirlo’s appointment immediately.
Pirlo, 41, replaces Maurizio Sarri who was sacked after just one season as Juventus crashed out of the Champions League in the last 16 to French club Lyon on Friday.
Meanwhile, Pirlo was appointed as Juventus U-23 manager at the end of last month, marking his first role as a coach after hanging up his boots three years ago.
As a player, the Italy legend enjoyed a glittering four-year spell with Juventus in which he won four league titles and the Coppa Italia.
Pirlo has signed a two-year contract with the club.
