No good work will ever go unrewarded and/or appreciated though matter how long and here (in Pirlo’s case), the Wait was not long. Andrea Pirlo, 41-year-old is regarded as one of the finest players of his generation but has been out of the game since retiring as a player in 2017 and his former club has offered him a chance to manage the under-23 players of the club.
Andrea Pirlo who won 116 caps for Italy and helped them to win the World Cup in 2006 also won Serie A four times with Juventus after joining from AC Milan, with whom he spent most of his career and won two Champions League and two league titles. He left Juventus in 2015, finishing his playing career in Major League Soccer at New York City FC. Now, he will be taking a new challenge as manager.
