Andrea Pirlo has been shown the exit as head coach of Juventus after just one season in charge.

The Serie A giants confirmed Pirlo’s departure on social media on Friday,  thanking their former player for his services.

And, according to multiple reports, the Turin outfit will appoint their old manager Massimiliano Allegri who enjoyed a spell from 2014 to 2019.

Juve qualified for the Uefa Champions League by the skin of their teeth as they failed to defend the Scudetto title.

They finished in fourth place with 78 points, 13 points adrift of champions Inter Milan.

In a statement released on their website, the club said: “Thank you, Andrea. These are the first words that all of us need to say at the end of this special experience together. A few months ago, Andrea Pirlo, an icon of world football, began his new adventure, his first as a coach.

“To do this, first of all, it takes courage, as well as awareness of one’s own means, especially in a period marked by thousands of difficulties, with the world forced by the pandemic to reinvent its own rules day after day.

“Pirlo has just begun the first steps of what will no doubt become a brilliant career as a coach. An adventure of transformation, seeking, and often managing, to bring his ideas and his experience as a champion on the pitch from the “other side” of the fence.”
