Zola is shocked with Pirlo as Juventus new coach 

Andrea Pirlo became the new Juventus coach and Gianfranco Zola admits being ‘surprised’ by the announcement.

A week ago Pirlo was declared as the Under-23 team coach that plays in Serie C, but now unexpectedly the Italian player promoted to the position of head coach.

He replaces Maurizio Sarri who worked with Zola last season as an assistant manager at Chelsea.

“I would be dishonest if I claimed this did not shock me,” Zola told Sky Sport Italia, via Football Italia.

“It’s interesting and will go down as a major success story for the club if the project succeeds. However, it’s not an easy task, because Juventus are asking to compete in a certain way.”

“This is a courageous move from the club and based on the man’s quality, but Pirlo will need to go forward with their support. It’s not simple, but I think he can be successful in real aspects.”

Many of his former teammates will be trained by Pirlo like Gigi Buffon, who is older than his new boss.

“This must be set aside immediately. The players need to know him as a coach and Pirlo needs to be confident in the new role immediately.” Zola said.
