Italy legend Andrea Pirlo is back at Juventus, he's become their under-23 manager in what will be his first role as a coach.

The 2006 World Cup winner was a four-time Italian league winner in his four seasons as a player with the club.

"Today marks the start of a new adventure for Andrea Pirlo and Juventus, who return to work together five years later," the Serie A champions have announced.

"Andrea is, in fact, the new coach of the U23 team.

"And so, from coach! In the summer of 2015, Pirlo said goodbye to Juventus after four seasons, where he boasted an incredible record with the Bianconeri: 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. Welcome back, Coach Pirlo!"
