Andrea Pirlo wants to manage outside Italy

Former Juventus FC manager Andrea Pirlo wants to continue his coaching career but outside Italy.

The former AC Milan midfielder was sacked after just one season with Juve and in an interview with The Athletic via AS, he admitted that he is already looking for his next coaching adventure preferably in Major League Soccer.

“I would like to go abroad. I spent three years in the United States, so I have no problem with English, and I also speak French. I feel like I can go anywhere. I’m ready for the next adventure.

“I do not rule out anything. It’s a great league. I see a lot of coaches coming to MLS from other countries. I was lucky to play there. I saw what the USMNT did in the Gold Cup, so I’d say the American game is taking off.

"Many Americans now play in the best clubs in the world: Juve, Barcelona, Chelsea. If they are playing at that level, talk about their potential,” Pirlo said.

Pirlo ended his playing career with a stint in MLS with New York City FC and should not find it hard to adapt in the league with a series of clubs said to be open in welcoming him should there be an opportunity.
