Juventus have appointed former midfielder Andrea Pirlo as the new head coach of the club's under-23 side, the Serie A champions announced on Thursday.

The 2006 World Cup winner, Pirlo spent four years at Juve between 2011 and 2015, helping the Bianconeri to four Serie A titles, one Coppa Italia triumph and two Supercoppa Italiana victories.

A statement on the Italian club's website said, "Today marks the start of a new adventure for Andrea Pirlo and Juventus, who return to work together five years later. Andrea is, in fact, the new coach of the U23 team." He finished his career in MLS, playing for New York City, before eventually retiring from football in 2017. But after three years away from the sport, the 41-year-old is heading back to Turin to begin his coaching career.
