Journalism has been my prior job during childhood. With all things been so good for me, I am able to achieve my aim and fulfill the promise I made to my family. I am now a renowned sports journalist working with Ghana News Page.

Former Juventus Midfielder, Andrea Pirlo has been appointed as manager for the club’s Under-23 team.

Pirlo who is regarded as one of the finest players of his generation, has been out of the game since retiring as a player in 2017.

The 41 year old 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.

Pirlo left Juventus in 2015, finishing his playing career in Major League Soccer at New York City FC.

A club statement read: “In the summer of 2015, Pirlo said goodbye to Juventus after four seasons, where he boasted an incredible record: four Scudetti, one Italian Cup and two Italian Super Cups. It was a storyline that was dotted with many gems: decisive goals, assists painted on canvas and a vision of play like no other.

“And, of course, there is his experience with the Italian national team in 2006, which saw him crowned a world champion, and it is one he will make available to the U23 players, a young project in continuous growth and which this year, in its second year of operation, has led to a first and historic result, the Coppa Italia Serie C.

“A new challenge awaits now, for a return that can only make Juventus fans happy.”

Andrea Pirlo
