Gattuso Welcomes Former Milan Team-mate Pirlo Into Juventus Job

Gennaro Gattuso warned Juventus head coach Andrea Pirlo that his illustrious playing career will count for little in his new job.

Pirlo, who has not had a coaching job and only took over as Juve’s Under-23s boss last week, was handed the reins in Turin on Saturday in the wake of Maurizio Sarri’s dismissal.
Sarri was sacked after just a single season in the job, after leading the Serie A champions to defeat to Lyon in their Champions League last-16 tie the previous evening.
The former midfielder – who won four Serie A titles, one Coppa Italia and two Supercoppa Italiana during a four-year spell with Juve – has signed a two-year deal, and he is now gearing up for his first-ever coaching job at one of the world’s biggest clubs.
And Gattuso, who played alongside Pirlo at Milan and for Italy, provided an honest assessment of the job’s difficulties for his former team-mate.
“Well he’s screwed now… That’s the job,” Gattuso told Sky Italia following Napoli’s defeat to Barcelona in the Champions League on Saturday.
“He’s lucky to be starting at Juventus, but this profession is one where a great playing career is not enough.
“You have to study, to work hard, and you don’t get much sleep.”
