Andrea Pirlo replaces Maurizio Sarri at Juventus

FABRICE COFFRINI / AFP

Andrea Pirlo is the new coach of Serie A champions Juventus.

The former Italy and Juve star was appointed just hours after the club sacked Maurizio Sarri.

The 41-year-old, who has no previous top-level coaching experience, has signed a two-year contract until June 2022. 

During his four seasons with Juventus, Pirlo won four Serie A titles and one Italian Cup.

He also clinched two Champions Leagues and two league titles with AC Milan and was a key figure in the Italian team that won the 2006 World Cup.

Sarri was sacked just a day after Juventus crashed out of the Champions League.
