Juventus legend Alessandro del Piero to take charge at Real Mallorca

Juventus legend Alessandro del Piero is set to become sporting director at Real Mallorca.

Mallorca currently compete in the Spanish Segunda Division.

An American takeover of the islanders by businessman Robert Sarver has seen a capital injection for the club, and Sarver is keen to raise the profile by hiring NBA star Steve Nash as an ambassador.

Marca says Nash has used his great friendship with Del Piero to convince the World Cup winner to come on board in a senior role.

The 41-year-old retired in 2015 after finishing his career with spells in Australia and India.
