They can also be registered as assistants in Serie A or Serie B.

“I’ve been coming to Coverciano since I was 14,” Pirlo told the FIGC’s website.

“I know everyone here, from the people who work at reception to the waiters, so coming back is a bit like coming home.

“Following the coaching course makes you open your mind and think about solutions you didn’t pay adequate attention to as a player.”

The full list of former players who completed the course is as follows: Gabriel Omar Batistuta, Daniele Bonera, Paolo Cannavaro, Jose Antonio Chamot, Matteo Contini, Alberto Gilardino, Francelino Da Silva Matuzalem, Paolo Montero, Thiago Motta, Andrea Pirlo
