Juventus ‘want to bring back club legend Andrea Pirlo’ to join Maurizio Sarri’s backroom staff when Chelsea manager’s return to Italy is confirmed
- Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has offered Andrea Pirlo a role at Juventus
- The midfielder spent four years with the club and won the Scudetto each season
- He left in 2015 and retired in 2017 after two years with New York City
Former Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo could be set to rejoin the club in a coaching capacity once the Italian giants confirm Maurizio Sarri as their new boss, according to Tuttosport.
The 116-cap former Italy international spent four years with the Turin giants, winning the Scudetto in every season and reaching the 2015 Champions League final.
His return, with either the Under 23s or Primavera side, is likely to coincide with the arrival of Maurizio Sarri.
Andrea Pirlo is set for a return to former club Juventus in a coaching capacity
The Chelsea boss is set to leave Stamford Bridge and return to Italy with the Serie A champions after the departure of Massimiliano Allegri.
Despite finishing third, reaching the Carabao Cup final and winning the Europa League, discontent remains between Sarri and club fans, meaning a departure is likely.
After joining on a free transfer from Milan in 2011, Pirlo went on to play 164 games and score 19 goals for Juventus.
He also accumulated 116 caps and 13 goals over 13 years with his international side, winning the World Cup in 2006 and helping them to the final of Euro 2012 where they lost to Spain.
