Pirlo agent: ‘Could soon be Barcelona talks’

Andrea Pirlo’s agent insists the coach ‘did the maximum he could’ with Juventus, but hints there ‘could soon be’ negotiations with Barcelona.

The coach was originally appointed as the Juve Under-23 boss, with a team that plays in Serie C, but within days was promoted to the senior role to replace Maurizio Sarri.

He lasted just one season, winning the Coppa Italia and the Italian Supercup, while scraping fourth place in Serie A.

“In my view, he did the maximum he could, especially as it was his first year on the bench,” agent Tullio Tinti told Tuttomercatoweb.

There have been reports linking 42-year-old Pirlo with another huge job, as Barcelona seem on the verge of sacking Ronald Koeman after a disastrous start to their campaign.

“There are no negotiations at the moment, but who knows, there could soon be some talks,” was Tinti’s response.

Although a great player and World Cup winner with Italy in 2006, Pirlo has no coaching experience other than that season with Juventus.

He had 52 competitive matches with the Bianconeri, overseeing 34 victories, 10 draws and eight defeats in all competition.

His Juve squad scored 108 goals and conceded only 50.

Pirlo retired from his playing career in January 2018, having represented NYCFC, Juventus, Milan, Inter, Brescia and Reggina.

    Yes fascinating indeed as in this quick pace world we often forget about the details (the devil is in the details) and in the details of euro 12 spain was about to be eliminated from their group then miraculously made it out and the articles like this website back then there were other sites even wrote about how tried spain and slow moving (I kid you not they were using those words) was then in the final that Italy was slated to win, we had hyperborean ubermen 20-0 on italy very odd indeed

    great he wil ruin his career before it starts, fail at a juve begging for an overhaul then fail at a barcelona with same issues. He should, you know, start small like most. Learn his trade properly or he will only be remembered by this generation as a bum coach which would be unfair to him.

    forgot to mention in my note -in the group stage we played Spain and ramos hacked down in their box balotelli (who was actually peaking at that time line with Prad coach) and got away with it and as he brushed off the dust off his pate balotelli who protested got a yellow
