Pirlo named coach of Turkish side Fatih Karagumruk
Former Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo has been appointed as manager of Turkey’s top-tier side Fatih Karagumruk SK, the club said on Sunday.
The 43 year old has been out of work since being sacked from his first managerial job at Juventus one year ago.
He has signed a one-year contract with the Istanbul-based Super Lig club, starting on July 1. “Happy to start a new adventure. Thank you Karagumruk SK,” the former Italy international said on Twitter.
Karagumruk were promoted to Turkey’s top flight in 2020 and finished eighth in the country’s top division last season.
