Former Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo has not ruled out running an MLS club in the future. In an interview with “The Athletic”, the Italian recalled his time in the United States as a player, saying that football flourished in Uncle Sam’s land.
– I don’t deny anything. (MLS) It’s a big league. I saw what USA did in the Gold Cup and I would say they are leading. Many Americans play for the best clubs in the world. I spent three years there and I have no problem with English and I also speak French. I feel ready for the next challenge.
Despite working in New York City and showing an affinity for the city, the young coach has no preference for working with the team.
– View all teams. I love New York, but I love everything about MLS. I enjoyed my time there. My two kids were born in the United States, so we’ll always have this with us.
In 2020, Pirlo got his first opportunity as a professional coach at Juventus, but he did not have a good season. Despite winning the Italian Cup title, the Old Lady had to finish fourth in the Italian Championship and a place in the Champions League.
