​Legend Pirlo becomes Juventus U23 manager

Juventus have appointed legendary former midfielder Andrea Pirlo as their new Under-23 manager, reports BBC Sport.

The 41-year-old, regarded as one of the finest players of his generation, has been out of the game since retiring as a player in 2017.

Pirlo won 116 caps for Italy, helping them to win the World Cup in 2006.

He 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.
