Pirlo named coach at relegated Sampdoria

Italian Serie B side Sampdoria has announced the appointment of former AC Milan and Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo as their new coach on a two-year deal. Pirlo, who won the World Cup with Italy in 2006, previously coached Juventus’ under-23 team before being promoted to the senior team for the 2020-21 season. Despite leading Juventus to Coppa Italia and Supercoppa titles, Pirlo was sacked in May 2021 after the team finished fourth in Serie A. He then became the manager of Turkey’s top-tier side Fatih Karagumruk SK in June 2022, but was released in May 2023 after the club finished seventh in the Turkish Super Lig.

Sampdoria, who were relegated from Serie A, will play in Serie B next season. The team finished bottom of Serie A in the 2022-23 campaign, winning only three games and losing 25.
